Yesterday I was working very hard on a crossword puzzle at work. It was harder than The Tennessean puzzles I'm more accustomed to working. One of the hints was:
14th American President, Franklin _____
six letters, __ __ __ __ __ __
I wanted to make it Delano, but knew that was way to early in time to be him.
The people I worked were no help. They argued that it was Wilson.
me: There was no Franklin Wilson who was President.
them: Sure there was!
me: His name was Woodrow, not Franklin.
them: You're wrong.
me: There was FDR and Woodrow Wilson, but no Franklin Wilson.
them: We don't really know our Presidents.
So I googled this morning -- Franklin Pierce was the 14th President.
I don't think I'll mention it to them --- especially after the whole President Monroe incident earlier...
