In these troubled times it's useful to look at the past to see what presidents in the past have done. I'm not talking about Millard Fillmore or Warren G. Harding. I'm talking about the heavyweights -- like Lincoln and FDR -- presidents who faced enormous challenges during their tenures. During these uncertain economic times, I ask myself "what would FDR do?" I can't say that I can come up with a good answer as yet. But the question keeps nagging at me. When I think of the culture wars that divide the country, I wonder what Lincoln would do. I think of the words from his second inaugural address: "with malice toward none; with charity toward all." I'm still trying to make sense of it all. But in the meantime, I pose the questions (in button form): What would FDR do? What would Lincoln do?
On a different note, I've quite enjoyed designing these buttons. I am emailing my advertising/copywriter friends for suggestions. The button is such a great format -- it requires such an economy of means. More to come -- so stay tuned.
