Margaret Truman Dead at age 83

Dressed for a concert appearance

This last summer I read Margaret Truman's biography of her father, Pres. Harry S Truman. I really enjoyed getting a personal insight into the man who has become my favorite president. During our honeymoon, Cat and I took a tour of the Truman Presidential libary in Independence, Missouri. Only a couple of Yellow Dog Democrats would consider that a romantic vacation spot!
