Al Franken, Idiot Savant

People were always impressed by my ability to name all the US Presidents, in chronological order, from memory. Since most Americans seem to be able to name only Washington, Lincoln and whoever the current power mad White House occupant happens to be, I guess my minor feat does appear extraordinary, though it really isn't.

Maybe someday there will be no more Presidents to add to the list, and we can then celebrate and learn about people who really deserve to be remembered.

As far as Al Franken's talent, I can name all the states on a map, but I wouldn't be able to draw one the way he does.


  1. He did it quite well.

    I could too - IF I could but draw ;-)

  2. Okay.. was there a real faint pencil outline already there?
