My Dad and A Frog

1968 was a nail-biter. My folks of course were rabidly anti-Nixon. His win would be disastrous. 8-year-old Aaron's joke, told that anyone would be better, was to invent examples like, "even a frog would be better." Then Nixon won, and it was scary. But my Dad wisely said to me, "The world isn't going to end, this just means that the country isn't going to be governed the way we'd like it to be." That stuck with me.
