Day 172, July 22

I grew up watching such television shows as "Davey Crockett" and "Daniel Boone."  I thrilled to their adventures, especially the heroics of Crockett as he served and died at The Alamo.

What I hadn't realized was that Davey Crockett was a very capable and respected political leader, serving three terms as a United States Congressman from Tennessee.

Crocket was as intrepid in his lawmaking as he was in his other exploits.  An old-fashioned man, he didn't care for government handouts or charity.  (Would that we had him in Congress today!)
