When Theodore Roosevelt was reelected president in 1904, his friend Owen Wister sent him a telegram to celebrate:
RICHARD THIRD ACT ONE SCENE ONE LINES ONE AND TWO
The lines read “Now is the winter of our discontent made glorious summer by this sun of York.”
Roosevelt spent the next four years fighting a stubborn Senate and an equally stubborn House. As he was leaving office he received another wire from Wister:
ROMEO AND JULIET ACT THREE SCENE ONE LINE THREE PRECEDING MERCUTIO’S EXIT
The line reads “A plague o’ both your houses!”


This is fantastic, I love when we can see historical figures doing similar things to us but in their own contexts.  
I have issues with Ted (seriously, read about his safari period), but I can be on board with this.

One of my biggest pet peeves is when Americans gasp and get all horrified when they hear about the Iranian tradition of slaughtering a lamb and donating its meat to the poor when something good happens. Not every country’s meat industry functions like American slaughterhouses. The laws of halal…

seriously, why do people freak out about that???
