Born today was Lucy Hayes,
The wife of Rutherford B.
She wouldn't serve liquor in White House soirees;
It was lemonade, coffee, or tea.
A Wetter View: "Total abstinence is so excellent a thing that it cannot be carried to too great an extent. In my passion for it I even carry it so far as to totally abstain from total abstinence itself." [Mark Twain]
