Quote of the day

“We are not rich in the bank, but we have always prospered, and we have quite enough. I never walk out with my husband but I hear the people bless him … I never lie down at night but I know that in the course of that day he has alleviated pain and soothed some fellow-creature in the time of need … Is not this to be rich?”

– Charles Dickens

Snap Answer

Yesterday’s Quick Quiz asked: “Which president was nicknamed ‘His Accidency’ and why? The answer is… John Tyler. He became president in 1841, just one month after William Henry Harrison was inaugurated into that office. Harrison gave the lengthiest inauguration speech in history and refused to wear a hat or coat to give it, in spite of bad weather. He died of pneumonia a month after that disastrous decision and became the first president to die in office. Tyler, therefore, became president “by accident.”

Lilly’s story

Ken Foster, an author and a Woolrich native, has a new project. He and photographer Traer Scott are working on telling the real-life story of Lilly the Deer. Lilly was orphaned at birth and raised as a house pet in Michigan. Last year, the state decided she should be returned to the wild, since keeping deer in residence is a violation of the law. Lilly’s owner said on television, “I think love should be enough.” Eventually, the state agreed that Lilly could stay. Now Foster and Scott are raising funds on Kickstarter.com to tell her story.

He was born in 1835 when Halley’s comet could be seen in the night sky, and he ended up fulfilling his own prediction that he would “go out with it,” dying at the age of 75 in 1910, a year when the famous comet had come ’round again.
