My parents gave me America: The Book for Christmas three years ago along with the 2006 day-calendar version, but I still haven’t made it through all the entries. Day calendars make me anxious, alright? I’m expected to fully digest an entire 4.5" x 4.5" square of paper every single day even if it only contains a few words and a large graphic? I got tired just writing that sentence. But almost all the entries I've read so far are smart and laugh-out-loud funny, just as you’d expect from the writers of The Daily Show.

The heading for March 23, 2006, is “Quoting the President,” and the subheading is “On the Economy.” Below a picture of FDR are these quotes:

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” —Franklin D. Roosevelt, March 4, 1933

“Oh, and starvation. We might all starve.” —Franklin D. Roosevelt, March 4, 1933
