Odd thoughts go through my head:

Woodrow Wilson’s enemy was the Kaiser
Herbert Hoover’s enemy was economics
FDR’s enemies were the axis powers
HST’s enemy was communism
Ike’s enemy was the USSR
LBJ’s enemy was arrogance
Nixon’s enemy was himself
Carter’s enemy was micromanagement
Reagan’s enemy was the USSR
Bush I’s enemy was candor
Clinton’s enemy was testosterone
Bush II’s enemy was impetuosity
Obama’s enemy was the GOP
Trump’s enemy is democracy

  1. Jim, glad to see you’re still around and giving our meager brains some things to contemplate along with our navels. I miss Duane though. Lots of fun on that blog.

      I’m glad to report that Duane is still around, just not blogging. He is part of a dinner group that I see about once a month and is doing well. I miss his blog too. Anson Burlingame is part of the group as well! If you wan to send me an email at jwheeler59@icloud.com, I can give you his email address.

      I recall at least one instance this year of seeing one of your columns in the Globe, Herb. Hope that continues. Best wishes. : )
