Another example of human stupidity: they let a murderer rule their country! Eisenhower absolutely loathed cats. During his occupation of the White House, he ordered the staff to shoot all cats they saw on the premises. "...Eisenhower always seemed to be relaxed and smiling. As a result, his years in the White House were known for peace, prosperity, and blandness." -from the Scholastic Encyclopedia of the Presidents and Their Times by David Rubel. Who are they kidding? Of course, presidents are allowed to get away with a lot of things. For example George Washington owned slaves but most history books overlook that and that's almost as bad as murder. Dwight is the most recently deceased famous cat-killer.
