Subject: RE: BS: Anybody watching 'The Roosevelts' on PBS
My mother's parents met at the University of Cincinnatti, where they were both students. Grandaddy went on to become a patent attorney. But they both loathed the Roosevelts.
Grandma was to the manor born, first generationg born to said manor, but still. She would have that sense of noblesse oblige, but would never see the virtue of the new deal. She would have bought groceries for a family that had nothing. But she couldn't see that it was better that the government provide that family with the means to buy groceries.
