My father failed to pull out in time and so my twin and I were conceived. The year was 1936,the Great Depression was showing little sign of ending and my father had been out of work for a long time. About the last thing my parents needed was an additional child, much less twins.
Between campaigning, fund raising, parades, picture taking and the multitude of social functions, it is a wonder our politcians have any time to attend to what they were elected to do.
