A friend reminded me of this short piece I wrote on George Washington a few years ago. He said I should put it out on his birthday. So, here it is. Also see his wonderful letter to Lewis Nicola, shaming him for thinking that he would participate in something so unrepublican. It reveals the good father of the good country.
My regards to M. Chirac and Napoleon, while wishing a very happy birthday to Mr. Washington . May his children continue to prosper.
