Submission + - Former U.S. President Gerald Ford dies

ral315 writes: "Former United States President Gerald Rudolph Ford, Jr. has died today, at his home in Rancho Mirage, California, at the age of 93. Ford was sworn in as the 38th President of the United States following the resignation of Richard Nixon in 1974 following the Watergate scandal. He served the appointed term and ran an unsuccessful re-election bid for the office of the presidency in 1976 against Jimmy Carter. Ford is the only president to have held the office of the presidency without ever having been elected to either the presidency or the office of the vice-presidency."

We all agree on the necessity of compromise. We just can't agree on when it's necessary to compromise. -- Larry Wall
