QOTD From England

Found this in the comments on Samizdata:
Mr Ed
Maj.-Gen. Ross was perhaps the last person to enter the District of Columbia and achieve something worthwhile, if not enduring.
Gen Ross was in charge of the British effort that marched into Washington and burned several parts of it down in 1814.

President Dwight Eisenhower brought about the Interstate highway system.

And Marilyn Monroe was reported to have slept with the Russian President. That might have set the mood to save the world!

In that era even shaking hands with Khrushchev would put you on some short and very exclusive lists. She did reportedly sleep with all 3 Kennedy brothers.
