Hail to the chiefs

In recognition of Presidents Day, Herald reporter Eric Stevick has run down the list of U.S. presidents who've visited Everett, including Teddy Roosevelt, William Howard Taft and Harry Truman. The Everett Herald, in reporting on Taft's visit in 1911, compared Everett's giddiness to “a telephone girl fishing olives from a long bottle with a hairpin."

And we thought the political reporting on cable news channels was garbled and foolish.
