Keep Cool.

Looky what some of my students gave me (click to embiggen):

A Calvin Coolidge campaign button from 1924 is quite a find. As gifts go, this one came pretty close to hitting the bullseye; I greatly admire Mr. Coolidge. Why? Because he kept his mouth shut and screwed up less than most. Also, he was either completely out of touch with popular culture or he was a laconic smart-ass of Homeric proportion: when introduced to Red Grange of the Chicago Bears, Coolidge reportedly said, “I’ve always liked animal acts.”

It’ll be locked in an argon chamber for safe keeping, and I’ll wear it in my lapel buttonhole on formal occasions.
