On the passing of President Ford...

We wish to note the passing of former President Gerald R. Ford.

Mr. Ford is unique in that he did not seek the presidency. Instead, the presidency sought him.

He was a noble and dignified man who did things in an honorable fashion.

His pardoning of President Nixon was the right thing to do, but it came at a terrible political cost to himself. Sometimes the right thing is not the politically expedient thing to do, and Mr. Ford found that out in 1976.

(There is a lesson there about pardons being the right thing to do for the current crop of Kentucky Democrats but they're too dense to get it).

We mourn the loss of this man who was there when history and his nation called upon him.

Check out a blogger criticizing what Governor Fletcher said about President Ford.

Given the fact that Governor Fletcher has divided Kentucky, isn’t his statement laughable?
