40.5' N 73.3' W

New York's latitude and longitude have nothing whatsoever to do with zebras. Nor are either the subject of this post. : - )

Slander and Guilty Pleasure. Here's a hilarious excerpt from a fake on-line biography of Zachary Taylor, our 12th President:

"Taylor was the philanderer that JFK could only dream of being, twice the lush that Benjamin Harrison ever was. On a slow day, he was a bigger crook than Nixon, a worse gambler than James K. Polk, and more of an insufferable whining brat than George Bush. Few people are aware of this today." and "The story of exactly how he acquired the peculiar nickname "muskrat head" has unfortunately been lost, but we do know that he was plagued with it almost from birth."

Here's the correct Taylor bio, from the White House web site.

Quotes Of The Day:

"Forty is the old age of youth, fifty is the youth of old age." - Victor Hugo
