Still young, and oh so accomplished

Bill Bennett turns 64 today. Hearing this news put me in mind of an old story. A father tells his lazy son, “What’s the matter with you; when George Washington was your age he had already thrown a silver dollar across the Potomac and was making his mark as a surveyor.” The son replies, “Yeah, and at your age he had already defeated the British.”
It’s amazing to realize how much Bennett has accomplished in his 64 years: czar in the war on drugs, Secretary of Education, author of (among other works) The Book of Virtues, scholar and historian, successful radio talk show host, and more. I can’t improve on Kathryn Lopez’s tribute to Bennett, so I’ll link to it instead and simply add Power Line’s happy birthday wishes.
