Senator Pastore: Will it make you happy if you read it? Mr. Rogers: I’d just like to talk about it, if it’s alright. My first children’s programRead More

Some of theseRead More

My fellow Americans, It’s a long-standing tradition for the sitting president of the United States to leave a parting letter in the Oval Office for the American elected to take his or her place.
