Once again – let’s hope Mrs. Shyster doesn’t read the blog.

Forgive the delayed inspiration as I should have responded in the spirit of the piece – let’s hope First Lady Shyster doesn’t read the blog.

Ah, she wouldn’t mind. Heck she would probably want to trade spouses with the Coolidges.  Calvin was more successful than I’ll ever be, and his nickname—Silent Cal—suggests that he’d at least shut up once in a while, which is something I’m sure Mrs. Shyster would appreciate in her spouse for a change.

Mike Kekich and Fritz Peterson were considered for Coolidge’s cabinet.  Little known factoid.

That’s a good find, Craig. Mrs. Coolidge was definitely a catch, in more ways than one.

I’m not complaining, though. My girlfriend enjoys keeping score, too, and will always pick up my pencil for me when I go to get some more beers or something. There’s not much more that you can ask for in a woman, I say…

She supposedly named their dog Rob Roy in a dig at Prohibition.  That’s kind of cool.

That’s probably an overly flattering picture of her.  The tipoffs are the distance from which the picture was painted, and the general blurriness around the face giving the effect of Vaseline on a camera lens.

Here is a head shot of the former First Lady:

Not a total ugmo, but not such a looker, either.
