lefthanded guitar BS: Anybody watching 'The Roosevelts' on PBS (57* d) RE: BS: Anybody watching 'The Roosevelts' on PBS 18 Sep 14


Watching it off and on, and finding the life of Eleanor the most fascinating of all. The humanitarian politics and steel backbone of both the Roosevelt men are so rare of politicians today, and so necessary for the people of the U.S. to survive and flourish. Perhaps this documentary will inspire someone, somewhere out there to aspire to a high polictical office and be as effective and valuable to our people as the Roosevelts were. From the National Parks to Social Security, the Roosevelts made a better world.

btw. I have never been a rabid fan of Ken Burns, am I the ONLY person who finds the narrator so portentious and pompous that I have to turn it off now and then, just to gasp for air?
