Will Rogers

Your story on Will Rogers recalled two things: (1) One day his column said, “We’re all ignorant only about different things”; (2) in the 1920s my father, as a cub reporter, interviewed Will Rogers at Pocatello, Ida., and asked him about President Coolidge. He replied: “The brains in that family belong to Mrs. Coolidge, but don’t print that, ‘cause I’ll deny it and if I deny it you’ll be out of a job.”
