Okay, no easy thing choosing ONE nifty thing said by the man who was born on this day, 4 Nov. (my niece Kate Harness's 21st birthday), down in the "Indian Territory" [known as Oklahoma for some time now], back in 1879, when Laura Ingalls was 12, when President Rutherford B. & 1st Lady Lucretia 'Lemonade Lucy' Hayes were in the White House & Mr. Woolworth opened his first 5¢ store. But here you go and didn't the multitudes wish that he'd never gotten on that plane back in the summer of '35. God bless today's birthday dude, the smart-aleck who said:

"Even if you are on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there."

William Penn Adair "Will" Rogers (1879-1935)
