February 4th

This dude is my grandfather.  He’s dead now.  He died on thanksgiving, not this last one, but the one before that.  Everyone in the universe came to his funeral because he was a fucking saint.  He bombed the shit out of germany in WWII, because that was the cool thing to do in the 40s; but then after that he became a teacher and eventually a principal.  He was a big fan of civilization, he believed in public services that enriched society; libraries, post offices, trains, social programs, and obviously public education.  He was modest, self-sacrificing, charitable, empathetic, and stoic… kind of an awesome combination as far as humanity goes.  Anyway, today would have been his 90th birthday.
