President's Day: Hey, remember when I used to write awesome presidential posts?

From Iotacons by Andy Rash. Love.
Guys, today is President's Day. However, my university clearly hates both Washington and Lincoln and most especially Chester A. Arthur, so I do not have the day off. However, I do have pages of notes on a couple of presidents still floating around, awaiting my attention during another bout of procrastination, so I do mean to finish up my posts about all of them in the near future. In the meantime, I thought I'd gather them all up for your browsing pleasure so you can remember all that awesome stuff I used to write before grad school broke my soul (and some I've written in the midst of the breaking process):

0. The Articles of Confederation: America's first, failed government and pre-Washington presidency (7.10.08)

Enjoy my friends, this long journey will end one day and I will write up VPs or states or something (didn't I start that once?). Or I'll just keep live-blogging Lifetime movies. Either way.
