200 or bust!
Dwight D. Eisenhower was President of the United States for eight years after serving as Supreme Commander of the
Allied forces in Europe during World War II. Early in his career, however, he didn't win many accolades. Referring to his mediocre stint as an undergraduate at the U.S. Military Academy, he said, "If anybody saw signs of greatness in me while at West Point, they kept it to themselves."
I mention this only because I found it in remarkable parallel to Hyperion's announcement regarding my 'bedpost notch tally" - only a sad 118!
Clearly having schtooped only 118 men, I have much to do. This is only mediocre. Much as Dwight D. Eisenhower did, I shall push towards my goal despite a lack of recognition or applause. The Presidency of under-appreciated whoring awaits!
