RIP Gerald R. Ford

President Ford's death was announced today; he died at the age of 93, as the longest-lived president. He also became our first* unelected president, after being named our first unelected vice president. He was a genuinely nice man, and the last Republican president who tried to bring Americans together instead of pitting us against each other.

Oddly enough, I just posted a small piece about my visit to the Gerald R. Ford museum a few hours before hearing the news. You can read it here. (Scroll down 2/3 of the way to the "Grand Rapids" section.) You can also view photos from my September visit here.

* George W. Bush being the second unelected president, appointed by the Supreme Court in 2000.
