That may be 'known' by you and by a handfull of other loony-toon conspiracy nuts, Flagstone, but the rest of the world, and most historians, do not 'know' it.

Its now known that the second Roosevelt engineered the Japanese Pearl Harbour attack in order to drag America into WWII.

What do you mean 'WE don't know that'? You did know because you said they were fifth cousins. A cousin is a cousin in my book (I'm big into genealogy for over a year) ;-)

No, we don't know that. The two Roosevelt presidents were FIFTH cousins. In fact, Eleanor Roosevelt was closer related to Theodore than her husband was: Theodore was her father's brother.

Does everyone know that the two Roosevelt Presidents were cousins? Both made mistakes and both have great achievements - nothing in between with those two cousins ;-)

Does anyone know what is hanging from Muir's lapel? Seriously . . .

Without these two men, we would not today have a National Park system in the United States. Muir lost the battle for the Hetch Hetchy, but "won" Yosemite with Roosevelt's support. Muir's diaries of his time in the Yosemite Valley are a fascinating read.

Roosevelt was a real renaisssance man...overcame being a sickly child and did lots of things well...but he wasn't universally admired..when Marcus Hanna, an Ohio senator who'd been President McKinley's campaign manager, heard McKinley had died, he's reported to have said "and now that damn cowboy is president of the United States !"

Theodore Roosevelt was a manic depressive (it's now referred to as Bipolar). He had a tendency to make strange, off the wall comments in a social or business setting. His aides used to follow him around so they could interfere with the conversation if it was getting uncomfortable. He would make inappropriate and quick decisions that was detrimental to the country, but no major disasters that I recall reading. I read a lot about him; he was a fascinating man - way ahead of his time!! Another manic depressive and brilliant man, Winston Churchill, made a very bad decision during one of his manic episodes - Galipoli. Then there's Ralph Nader, a great man and champion for consumer rights, but would you want him as President? What's his name founder of CNN - another bright person; Patty Duke - one of the greatest actress, and so on and so on. No wonder they call it a 'brilliant madness'.

Two great men and two great conservationists..intrestingly enough the words 'conservation' and 'conservative' share a common Latin root which meant to guard or protect..it's really ironic that so many people who call themselves conservatives seem willing to squander the natural resources and beauty of our planet for immediate short-term financial gain..
