Coolidge and his Secretary
I've been reading some more on Calvin Coolidge and here's another anecdote I'd like to share with you.
Apparently, when Coolidge was Vice President, a young secretary was summoned to see him. "Miss Peck, you're a lovely young lady," said Coolidge. She seemed startled by the remark, but he continued, "Yes, you're very attractive." The secretary was surprised by the statements and a little stunned. Then he continued, "I'm telling you this young lady, to get you cheerful, because I'm going to make a few remarks about your punctuation!"
