by Patricia L. Cook This Tidbits shares some interesting election trivia. With another presidential election happening shortly in the United States, maybe it is time for some election news you may not have heard; funny, sad, and maybe a bit absurd! • The youngest man elected president was John Kennedy who was 43. Most Americans are aware of that news but did you know that Theodore Roosevelt was actually younger, 42, when he was elevated to president from vice president? He filled the position when William McKinley was assassinated. •The oldest president elected was Ronald Reagan who was 69. Reagan and Gerald Ford were the two presidents who lived the longest after serving, both living to age 93. • Young Grover Cleveland was only nineteen, not even old enough to vote, when he worked on James Buchanan’s successful Democratic run for the presidency in 1856. After Buchanan, there would not be another Democrat in the White House until Cleveland himself was elected 28 years later in 1884! Buchanan was the only president that never married. • Reagan was the only president who had been divorced. Five presidents remarried after their wives died, two of them, John Tyler and Woodrow Wilson, while they were in office. • Six U.S. presidents had no children. John Tyler had the most, fifteen! Tyler was called “His Accidency” by opponents, being the first vice president called to fill the office of president by the death of his predecessor, William Henry Harrison. Harrison died of pneumonia after only being in office 32 days, the shortest term of any U.S. president. • There have been short and tall presidents, with James Madison the shortest at only 5’4” (1.62 m). Abraham Lincoln was the tallest at 6’4” (1.93 m), with Lyndon Johnson only a _ inch (1.27 cm) under him. James Madison was Page 2 also the lightest president,

weighing only about 100 pounds (45.36 kg). William Howard Taft was the heaviest at about 300 pounds (136 kg) and actually had a bathtub installed in the White House that would fit four normal sized men! • His size was not the most unusual thing or memorable trivia about William Howard Taft, it was his activity after he was president. He served as a Professor of Law at Yale until President Warren G. Harding selected him to be Chief Justice of the Supreme Court eight years after his service as president, in 1923. In 1925, Calvin Coolidge was the first and only president to be sworn in by a former president. • Taft, said that his greatest honor was serving as Chief Justice. He wrote: “I don’t remember that I ever was President.” • When the government for the United States of America was first formed, there were no political parties. George Washington served as president with no political party affiliation. • The first political parties for the U.S. started in the late 1700s. On February 12, 1798, Thomas Jefferson wrote: “Two political sects have arisen

within the U.S., the one believing that the executive is the branch of our government which the most needs support; the other that like the analogous branch in the English government, it is already too strong for the republican parts of the Constitution.” The former were called federalists, sometimes monocrats and sometimes aristocrats, sometimes tories like the corresponding group in the English government. The latter were called republicans, whigs, anarchists, jacobins, and sometimes disorganizers. • When the U.S. Constitution was written, there was no mention of political parties. Most of the framers of the document hoped that no political parties would form. They hoped the new country would be such that everyone would just “get along!” (agree!) • The current two party system, with Democrats and Republicans, has been part of the political system in the U.S. for years. The first party was originally formed from many of the advisers that George Washington consulted with. Oddly the first political party, started in 1792, was called the Democratic-Republican Party.

• Many changes have happened with the political parties through the years. Smaller parties have tried to gain power but have never been very successful. The Republicans and Democrats are still the main newsmakers. • Canada has also been a country

dominated by two political parties, today the Liberal and Conservative parties. An interesting time in Canadian history was when there were seven distinct political parties in the legislature in 1854. • The Canadian parties at the time were four groups from Northern Canada: 1) the Tories, 2) moderate Conservatives, led by the first Prime Minister of Canada, John A. Macdonald, known as “Sir John A.,” 3) Baldwin Reformers, who were moderate Liberals, 4) and the Radical or advanced Liberal party, known as the “Clear Grits.” The other three parties were from Lower Canada. They were: 1) Parti Bleu, the majority of the French Canadians, considered a liberal party even though most French Canadians were conservative, 2) the Parti Rouge, which was a small party of French Canadian Liberals, some who were rather radical, and lastly, 3) an Englishspeaking minority in Lower Canada. • People all over the world get fed up with politics. In Naples, Italy in 2008, a 41-year-old man ate his ballot in protest to the politicians! He was charged with destroying election materials. • In 2004, a woman in England was fined for trying to register her cows, Henry and Sophie Bull and her dog, Jake Woofies, as voters. Her barn was on a separate property and when forms asked who the residents were, she listed the animals! • For a last Tidbit on elections, imagine the confusion if our North American countries had the diversity of over 1,000 political parties! According to the Election Commission of India, that is the estimate of parties that exist in India. The commission has a list of symbols that political parties can use to represent their groups, including a kite, diesel pump, kettle, pressure cooker and many others. As you vote, be glad that we do have elections and that our ballots don’t contain pressure cooker and kite parties!

The Berlin Wall started as a barbed wire fence, constructed overnight as Berliners slept. Imagine the shock of finding you couldn’t cross from one side of the city to the other. • The city of Berlin and country of Germany was divided at the conclusion of World War II. The Soviet Union and communism controlled the East, with the allied powers of Great Britain, France and the United States controlling the West in a democracy. So it was a West vs. East; democracy vs. communism divide. • By 1949, the division of Germany and the city of Berlin was official. West Germany was called the Federal Republic of Germany and East Germany was the German Democratic Republic. Since Berlin was entirely within the East, and it was agreed that the city would be divided, West Berlin was like an island of democracy within East Germany, surrounded by a wall. • When the Germans in the Soviet-controlled East became disillusioned with the economic and political oppression of communism, many defected to the West. Approximately 1,500 people per day were fleeing to the West seeking democracy by 1961. • Rumors arose that the German Democratic Republic was going to do something drastic to stop the movement of people to the West. That became a reality during the night of August 1213, 1961, when soldiers and construction crews were brought in after midnight. While the people of East and West Berlin slept, crews tore up the streets, put up concrete posts and strung barbed wire separating the east and west. They even cut the telephone lines. • Upon awakening on the morning of August 13th, Berliners were shocked to see the border. They could no longer visit friends and relatives on the other side. More than 60,000 commuters who went to better-paying jobs in West Berlin could not cross the line to work. If a person went to sleep on August 12th away from their loved ones on the other side of the city, they were stuck there, unable to return for decades. • The fence constructed in 1961 was easy for people to cross so in 1962 a second fence parallel to the first was erected. The area between the fences was cleared to create an empty space where guards could see escape attempts. • By 1965 a concrete wall was added. It stood until a more sophisticated wall was built in 1975. This wall was also accompanied by over 300 watchtowers and thirty bunkers to keep people from crossing the border. A visit to the Berlin Wall was quite an experience in contrast. It wasn’t just a wall, it was the wall plus a 50 foot wide zone that led to a parallel pair of barbed wire fences. Tall guard tours sttod in the middle. Entering into East Berlin was through Checkpoint Charlie. From the minute you passed the guard shack it was almost sureal. Camears were positioned on the buildings and it looked as if nothing had been done since the war. The bombed out building shells still stood among rebuilt or repaired building from the post war clean up. Windows on buildings that overlooked the boarder zone were bricked up, trolley

The contrast between the modern cosmopolitan city of West Berlin was stark and it was obvious why people tried to escape. • President Ronald Reagan spoke to the people of West Berlin on June 12, 1987. His words were some of the most memorable of his presidency: “General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization: Come here to this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” • The Wall, in its final reinforced state, stood until November 9, 1989. Thousands of Germans demanded passage through the gates after the government announced that “private trips abroad” would be allowed. They, literally, tore the wall down. • Reunification of Germany was formally concluded on October 3, 1990. The infamous wall stood from August 13, 1961 until November 9, 1989.

By Dr G. Donohue MD

Hot Flashes Can Last Into the 70s DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Will you please tell me if there is something I can take to get rid of hot flashes? I am 74 and have them all the time. I sweat terribly. I have tried Estrace (female hormone), Estroblend (a dietary supplement) and black cohosh (an herbal remedy). -- M.B. ANSWER: It's said that 8 percent of women still have hot flashes into their 70s. Most women get over them in six months to five years after menopause. The drop in estrogen production that occurs with menopause affects a part of the brain that regulates body temperature. The brain's thermostat is thrown out of whack, and the result is spells of sudden, uncomfortable warming with sweating. Let me give you the usual recommendations made for control of hot flashes. I'm pretty sure you must have tried them after more than 20 years of putting up with flashes. Dress in layers so that outer garments can be shed at the first inkling of a hot flash. That can keep it from becoming a full-blown one. Keep ice water on hand and drink it at the start of a flash. Cut back on caffeine. Slow, deep breathing at the onset of a flash is said to minimize it. Estrogen, which you have tried, is the most effective treatment for flashes. It should be taken in as low a dose as possible for the shortest time possible. Maybe a different estrogen preparation would work for you. Effexor and Lexapro, two antidepressants, have met with success in suppressing hot flashes for some women. Here they are not used for their antidepressant action. It’s an example of medicines that have more than one function. Neurontin (gabapentin) is a seizure-control medicine that is also used for control of hot flashes. Hot flashes that have lasted as long as yours call for a consideration of conditions other than estrogen deprivation. An overactive thyroid gland, a hidden infection and two unusual tumors -carcinoid and pheochromocytoma -- are examples of illnesses that produce symptoms similar to a hot flash.

1 (5 1/2 to 6 pound) whole chicken, or 5 pounds breast, drumsticks and thigh parts 1/2 tablespoon baking powder 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 tablespoons garlic powder 2 tablespoons poultry seasoning 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper 1 small onion, halved 1 lemon, halved 8 sprigs rosemary 4 cloves garlic cloves, smashed 2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme Cooking oil spray 1. Remove the neck, giblets and any pieces of fat inside of the bird. Rinse the bird with cold water inside and out. Remove any excess fat and leftover pin feathers. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Sprinkle the chicken skin (breast side only) with the baking powder. Place the chicken on a roasting rack in a large baking pan and let it air-dry in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Pat the chicken dry with more paper towels. 2. Spray a large baking pan with cooking-oil spray. Rub the olive oil all over the chicken. Turn the chicken breast side up, twist the wing tips and tuck them behind the bird. Sprinkle the chicken inside and out with the garlic powder, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Rub the spices inside and out of the bird, or if using parts, on both sides. Stuff the cavity with the onion, lemon, rosemary, garlic and thyme, or place aromatics under the chicken parts 3. Preheat oven to 425 F. Place the chicken in the upper half of the oven and cook, uncovered, for 15 minutes to brown and crisp the skin. Lower the oven temperature to 350 F. Spray the chicken with the cooking-oil spray. Roast the chicken for an additional 35 to 40 minutes, or until the juices run clear when a thigh is pierced with a knife, or an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thigh and not touching bone registers 165 F. 4. Remove the chicken from oven and allow it to rest, uncovered, for at least 10 minutes prior to carving. Do not cover the meat because it will steam and soften the crispy skin. Makes 10 servings.
