Fireside Chats by Franklin D. RooseveltI loved this book. So interesting to contrast how FDR spoke to the American people intelligently- addressing many complex economic and social issues- without the sound bites and the dumbing down that we see now. No wonder he was elected for four terms. The people loved and respected FDR. I think a lot of that love and respect sprang from these fireside chats. He spoke to them respectfully, as if they were there in the room with him. He had faith in their ability to understand complex issues. He admitted when he was trying something new that could fail. He admitted when his plans did fail. He brought the people along with him on the journey to essentially save our democracy. He was, in my opinion, the 20th centurys greatest president.

I want to tell you what has been done in the last few days, why it was done, and what the next steps are going to be. I recognize that the many proclamations from State Capitols and from Washington, the legislation, the Treasury regulations, etc. I owe this in particular because of the fortitude and good temper with which everybody has accepted the inconvenience and hardships of the banking holiday.
