we'll call him MilF, shall we?

No better way to start the new year, really, than by reading about Millard Fillmore.

People's responses to learning about At Times Dull has been an accidental sociological study. Most people say, "What are you going to do when you get to Millard Fillmore?" I swear to this, 9 out of 10 times it's Millard Fillmore. The other time it's usually Garfield.

Ol' MillF is the poster boy for forgotten presidents with funny names. Unlucky #13. And biographies of this guy do not grow on trees. But, prosaically, the answer to "What are you going to do when you get to Millard Fillmore" is "read a biography of him and blog about it, just like all the others."

Happy new year from me and MilF!
