    In the mid 1960s there was a controversy over Lyndon Johnson's habit of picking up his beagle by the ears. The dog didn't seem to mind but pet advocates barked loudly. But that's just context.

    Borge was invited to the White House to give a piano recital. He was asked by the press afterwards how his performance was received.

    "Very well, actually. The President picked me up by my ears and said 'Mr. Borge, you are a great Dane!' "

      No doubt your Borge story was a reference to American-Danish relations.....which if it was, then I would like the cheese Danish....if its not from the LBJ administration....which is a politcal comment as you can see.

      :-D

      Shalom.
