GASP! No Historical Note from Carl Today

It’s a historical tragedy of huge proportion and we hope this isn’t a sign of things to come. But this morning RCP‘s Washington Editor and our resident history buff Carl Cannon had to forgo his daily historical diary to run a defense briefing at Charlie Palmer Steak. But history is apparently addictive. He couldn’t stop himself from giving Dwight Eisenhower a birthday shout-out. (Only in Washington…)

Good morning. It’s Friday, October 14, 2011, and I can’t write one of my historically themed essays this morning because I’m on my way to Capitol Hill to interview House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon at an RCP-sponsored breakfast event at Charlie Palmer’s. I thought about not sending out a note at all this morning, but then I realized it’s Dwight Eisenhower’s birthday. The five-star general who directed the liberation of a continent and became this nation’s 34th president was born on this day in 1890 in Denison, Texas, the third of seven sons. Happy birthday, Ike!
