presidential fact #31: a flaky president

A handful of times throughout his life, Winnie Harding went to spend some me time at Battle Creek Sanitarium in Michigan.

Battle Creek Sanitarium was run by the Kellogg brothers, one of whom invented Corn Flakes as something to feed the patients. I quite recommend the episode of Drunk History that tells the story.

  1. I had cousins in Battle Creek when I was growing up. One time we toured the Kellogg cereal factory. At the end we got cocoa krispies over a Dairy Queen type ice cream. I loved the cocoa krispies but they were discontinued before my childhood ended. Major loss as far as I am concerned.
