    The media of the day never showed him in a wheelchair. I don't know if they were showing some tact or if they felt showing him in a wheelchair would make people doubt his abilities.

    While his polices did nothing to end the depression he was a great wartime president and his being wheelchair bound didn't hinder him in that regard at all.

    Handicapped?? Not in the least.

    Jeremy is a fucking idiot. No need to discuss. It is what it is.

    Many years ago I remember hearing older folks talk about their surprise or shock or whatever after finally finding out FDR was in a chair. None of them sounded like they were upset with the media for having been kept in the dark for a long time though, which seems strange to me. Don't know what their motive was but it had to be something.

    As a somewhat related matter, I've read more than once that the WH press folks kept mum about JFK's fooling around when Mrs. K was out of town or when he was on the road.

    Very different times for both those guys.
