Harding: We Hardly Knew Ye

9:15 AM -- On this day in 1923, death came to President Warren G. Harding as the sequel to a less-than-optimal dining experience. Widely acknowledged, until quite recently, to be the dumbest man ever to occupy the White House, he was eloquently memorialized by ee cummings:

  • the first president to be loved by his
    bitterest enemies" is dead

    the only man woman or child who wrote
    a simple declarative sentence with seven grammatical
    errors "is dead"
    beautiful Warren Gamaliel Harding
    "is" dead
    if he wouldn't have eaten them Yapanese Craps

    somebody might hardly never not have been unsorry,perhaps
