I still like Ike (UW Attic #38)

I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.

That's Dwight D. Eisenhower, the president who had been a leader of warriors and later said some of the most profound things about peace of any president before or since. Especially since.

Here are some other good things Ike had to say.

And to hear a talk he gave 51 years ago this week (Jan. 17, 1961) that is still mighty relevant, there's always the immortal Uncle Warren's Attic #38.
