Oh, to be there and hear the stories. Imagine hearing Mark Twain and Will Rogers trade witticisms or Ronald Reagan tell a good story. Charles Russell, Frederic Remington, and Norman Rockwell told incredible stories in their paintings and writings. Ben Franklin was once called the First American, and somehow, that seems right. Ernest Hemingway took the American character and planted him around the world. Buffalo Bill, a real man of the West, created a mythical man of the West through his Wild West show. Teddy Roosevelt, a true blue blood from the east, went west to test his mettle.
Oh, the stories that would be told.
