Even Rosalyn Carter liked him, even though she was blushing. You know Betty Ford did. She probably drank to him.

  fredthebear: Thank you for the movie education. I did not know. Will try to watch it later this week since the World Series is over. Practically all these modern movies are cartoons, robots, drug-induced, violence on top of violence, more profanity than dialogue, or immoral sleep arounds stealing somebody else's.
