Watching an excellent Ken Burns documentary about the Roosevelts this afternoon. (We love Ken Burns' documentaries!) Hearing of Teddy Roosevelt's Portsmouth Treaty (where he corralled the Russians and Japanese and for which he received the Nobel peace prize), William, in indignation, fixes me with an accusing eye and demands to know, "And why have I never heard of these disputes?!"

And why have I never heard of these disputes?

Uh, yeah... sorry about that, William. (Smirk) I guess it just never came up over tea and toast. (Sheesh. Too much pressure for a mom of just barely average IQ here... And, man oh man, do you remind me of TR!)
