Quote of the day

On Presidents' Day I chose one who served as president shorter than any other. William Henry Harrison.

From Infoplease:

"The prudent capitalist will never adventure his capital . . . if there exists a state of uncertainty as to whether the Government will repeal tomorrow what it has enacted today."

I did not know he ran on a platform that included the re-establishment of a national bank!
