CPS Meets TR

We're spending the weekend appreciating a hero's hero.

Which is why we're reading The Rise Of Theodore Roosevelt, by Edmund Morris.

One of many money graphs:

"These men, in turn, had found him to be the leader they craved in that lawless land, a superior being, who, paradoxically, did not make them feel inferior. They loved him so much they would follow him anywhere, to death if necessary - as some eventually did. They and their kind, multiplied seven millionfold across the country, became his natural constituency."
Sound familiar?
