happy birthday mr. president

today is teddy roosevelt's birthday! happy one hundred and fiftieth!
and this the interview edmund morris conducted with mr. roosevelt today on this historic occassion. this is actually an amazing, amazing piece. read it, it's a treasure.
my favorite quote from the "colonel" in responce to what he thinks listening to joe biden about foreign policy must be like:
"You can’t nail marmalade against a wall."
