Twofer …

… Bryan Appleyard —  Spielberg/Hanks: The Rabbi & the Jock. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

… [Hanks] interrupts. “You go back to the late 1800s, there were a few decades of horrible presidents, and they gave way to Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson.”

Apparently, he forgot about Grover Cleveland, who is still well thought of. So was McKinley, who picked Teddy for VP. Many people think Wilson overrated, and now his racism has come to the fore. Another dumbass actor mouthing off.

  1. '“What about ‘The boss isn’t always right, but he’s always the boss’?” This is, indeed, a perfect Coenism.'

    I found this "Coenism" on page 20 of the Buffalo [New York] Courier-Express issue dated Thursday, Nov. 5, 1953:

    "GENTLE HINT--The owner of the Elmwood-West Utica fish market displays this sign on his desk: The Boss Isn't Always Right But He's Always The Boss!"
