I read this anecdote yesterday. It made me reflect on how much our nation's leadership has changed... At the close of the U.S. Civil War, Robert E. Lee was offered the presidency of a large insurance firm. Lee replied that he did not feel his services would be worth the $50,000 salary offered. "We aren't interested in your services," the man replied. "We merely want your name." "That," said General Lee quietly, "is not for sale."
