I came up with 39. I missed four that all served in a row. I don't think those guys did very much.
Are we there yet?

Mind you, I did get every single one since 1913 ! (It would have been every single one in the 20th and 21st century but I'd forgotten who came between Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson doh !)

It's wrong to attack Bedford for doing well.

Congrats, Bedford. Well done.

whenever you do good, it is worthy claim to fame, so to speak.

Ever heard of Jante´s Law? I bet not, as it is either a norwegian or sweedish thing. However, a writer studdied society and wrote down the laws of what he saw, how we oppress eachother. there is ten of them:

1. You shall not think you´re something
2. you shall not think you´re as much as us
3. You shall not think you´re wiser than us
4. You shall not think you´re better than us
5. You shall not think you know more than us
6. You shall not think you´re more than us
7. You shall not think that you´re good at anything
8. You shall not laugh at us
9. You shall not think anybody cares about you
10. You shall not think can teach us anything


the point is... to help people up, you should turn around almost every one of those laws. Living by them means destroying lives, which sadly humans do all too often

those are rules people use to oppress. I laugh at many, but I also don´t get mad if people laugh at me. my oposite rules are

1. you shall think you are something
2. you shall think you are eaqual with us
3. you shall know how wise you are
4. you shall know you are as good as us
5. you shall know diffrent people know diffrent things
6. you shall know you are good at something
7. you shall laugh at what is funny, but never offend
8. you shall know that many cares about you
9. you shall know you can teach everybody something.

... there is only nine, as 2 and (wouldbe) 6 would be the same. I don´t claim to live by those rules all the time, but at least I´m concious about it when I use ruling-teqnuices and when it is better left not to. there is wonders what you can do with just a look.
