  •  I just learned this yesterday! (0+ / 0-)

    Apparently, a witness at Washington's first inauguration later reported (erroneously, we now believe) that Washington added it spontaneously. It might have been lost in the dustbin of history, but for the fact that the unreliable witness was the 6-year-old Washington Irving.

    So now we know who to blame.

    "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."........ "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." (yeah, same guy.)
