The Nation, 8th February 1933.

One of the regular items in Malcolm's in-box is the regular e-mail from The Nation.

Today's is remarkably relevant: it is a link to the editorial on the inauguration of FDR:
Mr. Roosevelt Must Lead.
It should not be missed, and not just by old history-buffs and fellow-fogeys like Malcolm.

The image (above), not contemporary with the original article, shows Hoover shaking FDR's hand asthey together head towards the Inauguration. Knowing what we now do about FDR's incapacity (and what the media of the time suppressed), it alone is telling.

As for the rest of The Nation's current articles, they are very pragmatic and to the present moment. Sphere: Related Content
