Fact of the Day - February 6, 2010

So yea, probably the worst drawing of Gerry Ford ever. But that's what happens when I try to draw my own faces based on random Google Images that I've looked up.

I think it's bad, but it's decent enough that if you see the Gerald Ford above it, you can agree it looks kinda like him. But seeing that drawing by itself would never register President Ford in anyone's mind.

Anyway, this fact came from the Gerald Ford Library website and it goes on to say:

President Gerald R. Ford was born on July 14, 1913 at Omaha, Nebraska and was originally given the name Leslie Lynch King, Jr. His parents, Leslie Lynch King and Dorothy Ayer Gardner, had been married on September 7, 1912 at Harvard, Illinois. Just over two weeks after the birth of their son, Dorothy separated from her husband and took her infant son to her sister's home in Oak Park, Illinois and then to her parents home in Grand Rapids, Michigan. On December 19, 1913 an Omaha court granted her a divorce. In 1917 she married Grand Rapids businessman Gerald R. Ford and they soon began calling her son Gerald R. Ford, Jr., although his name was not legally changed until December 3, 1935.

Ford had the least imaginative mother possible, huh?

Well - enjoy this rare weekend update of the Fact of the Day! Another one coming tomorrow!
