So, a little known fact about our family – we are related to Grover Cleveland, the 22nd and 24th president of the U.S. (he’s the only one to serve 2 non-consecutive terms.) He married Francis Folsom at the White House when he was 49 and she was 21, and he didn’t think women should vote. Thanks, Grover.
Perhaps more interestingly, though, we’re related to Pretty Boy Floyd, one of the infamous bank robbers of the 1930’s. He hated his nickname, escaped from prison, and was shot down by officers and FBI agents in Ohio. I’d say that makes for a much better Hollywood movie. As a matter of fact, in the opening scene of “Public Enemies” starring Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum portrays Pretty Boy as he’s being killed. Needless to say, I was pretty excited they included him.
So, that’s today’s inspiration. Presidents and gangsters. Which side are you on?
