Happy birthday LBJ

image courtesy the LBJ library.

Today is LBJ's 97th birthday. He was responsible for the Great Society programs, the war on poverty, and the escalation of the Vietnam war. Of course Kennedy started it ... but you already know that. LBJ was born in Stonewall, Texas in 1908.

(I have a cousin who lives in Stonewall, and has a small business with an internet presence. I haven't linked to him just yet because I didn't know whether he's willing to be associated, however tenuously, with my %#!@in' hippie-liberal ways, etc. I guess I need to ask him.)
