Response to Omaha Steve (Original post)

Tue Aug 26, 2014, 10:49 AM

24. My Dad's dementia came and went.

I was along side of him at a hospital intake interview in 2003 when the nurse asked him a series of questions to determine how coherent he was.

He answered every question as expected until he was asked, "Who is the President of the United States?" to which he responded "Al Gore".

The nurse hesitated and looked at me before my dad continued with "There's no way in hell that you're going to get me to say the name of that bastard who stole the presidency."
