    The first of many stories to hit the press....

    Former President Ford Dies

    Former First Lady Betty Ford Says President Gerald Ford Has Died

    LOS ANGELES Dec 26, 2006 (AP)— Gerald R. Ford, who picked up the pieces of Richard Nixon's scandal-shattered White House as the 38th and only unelected president in America's history, has died, his wife said. He was 93.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Sad! regardless of politics, Gerald Ford was a fine human being. He'll be missed.

    R.I.P. Mr. President
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Rest in peace. Ford always seemed to me to be a decent and extraordinarily sane man.

    Gerald Ford is one of those guys who I've always had a quiet respect for.
    He is the first President I vaguely remember taking office - though I do remember Nixon's last chopper ride, though I was only six at the time.
    I do very vivedly remember his last walk down Penn. Avenue. He actually seemed rather relieved that day.
    May he rest in peace.

    He did pretty good considering the hand he was dealt.

    Mr. President, RIP

    All those years in Washington as a congressmen and then in the White House and not one scandal, not one. We need more Gerald Fords.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card
