And then there's Abe Lincoln. Honest Abe. Our first Republican president (which, when you think about it, kind of boggles the mind). He was a country lawyer, a debater (I wonder what he would have made of our current crop of incessant, sometimes idiotic Republican debates), and the author of the Gettysburg address.
Because it took many of us quite a long time to figure out how what a score was, and how to calculate four of them, I present one of my favorite apps, WolframAlpha, which calculates "four score and seven" in many different and surprising ways.
I've always liked Teddy. He was a big dude, a New Yorker, a naturalist, explorer, hunter, author, and trust buster. He was not a big fan of big corporations and they weren't particularly thrilled with him. For an app honoring Teddy Roosevelt, I first thought about a naval battle sim, because he was Assistant Secretary of the Navy. But then, I realized, he's also the namesake for Teddy Bears. And again, I could have taken the easy way out. I could have found you a Teddy Bear wallpaper app or a Teddy Bear maker app. But no. I wanted to bring to you the true spirit of President's Day (rampant, twisted commercialism), and so I bring you Battle Bears: Zombies. See? I got your back.
Next up, I could have skipped William Howard Taft and brought you to Woodrow Wilson. After all, Wilson helped found the League of Nations (and was from New Jersey, to boot). But instead, I selected William Howard Taft, another full-bodied president. Now, why did I select him for this august gallery, you ask? Hah! It seems Taft is one of the people credited for originating the 7th inning stretch. And you know what that means, don't you? Yep, a baseball app. MLB.com at Bat 11 is a pretty decent app (especially since it's free), with an absolutely terrible name. Kind of like William Howard Taft.
