I try to steer clear of celebrating controversial people with these little postcards. It’s harder than you might think. Remarkably, famous people, like the rest of us, always seem to have done at least one or two things that are at best regrettable and at worst horrifically appalling. Unfortunately, when it comes to politicians, these “things” are often of a different magnitude.
Card 92 recognizes stamp collector and prohibition ender, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Despite the little issue (absolute sarcasm there!) regarding the atomic bomb, Roosevelt is the kind of guy I wouldn’t mind having in the big chair today. He led the country out of the depression. He established jobs that not only helped some American families survive, but they improved roads, bridges, and more. And did I mention that he ended prohibition? I know a lot of people in quarantine (or close) who are very grateful for that.
