The comments regarding John C. Calhoun were particularly disturbing as I am a descendant of the gentleman. Rather than being an apple-polishing “yes man,” which we are accustomed to today, Mr. Calhoun spoke his mind. Instead of waiting for his turn at the Presidency, he acted like a V.P. Washington could use more of this today.

We hope you enjoy our work.
