WHO WAS ? David Rice Atchison !
April 6, 2008 11:54am CST
I'll give you a hint. He was President of the United States of America between James K. Polk and Zachary Taylor. Let's see, now. Polk was the 11th president and Taylor was the 12th. What the heck am I talking about? Can there be an 11 and 1/2 president? Here's a link with the complete story. http://home.nycap.rr.com/useless/atchison/index.html The web site where this can found specializes in 'useless' information. What do you have to say about David Rice Atchison? What other interesting but 'useless' information can you tell us?

Thank you for this post. You made my day. I have seldom enjoyed a website so much. I am still laughing about some of the useless information I read. I don't know much about American history so I can't say if there were 11 1/2 presidents. As far as other useless information is concerned, I must say I can't think of any right now. I think Steve Silverman has covered it all.
