Ah, the American President — the most powerful person in the world. Love ’em or hate ’em, we can’t get enough of our presidents. And when they show themselves to be like us — flawed and beset and occasionally quite ill — well, that just makes them more irresistable.
So we got a kick out of Health In Plain English’s Presidential Disease site.
We’ve already blogged about Eisenhower’s heart attack, but there’s a lot to be said about a quick, easy-access compendium of all presidents. Why ones got shot? Depressed? Who was an alcoholic? It’s all there, on one page.
And, just as diseases tell us a lot about a person and their era (epiglottitis killed Washington!), we think the HIPE Presidential site says a lot about them.
For instance, their take on Jimmy Carter suggests they might be Republicans.
That’s all for this week, thanks for stopping by and remember to visit on Monday for more medgadgets!
