Who is that tall good lookin' fellow beside "George Washington"?
Not the Minister to France and his Minister of State, Thomas Jefferson, but rather the able aide, "Colonel" Steve Isom of Cayce, South Carolina, who happens to belong to that distinguished group known as "War Eagles".
Colonel Isom seems to spend time in those hallowed halls of the South Carolina legislature (GW knows about that sort of work from his years in Virginia's House of Burgesses a "few" years ago.)
Colonel Isom has managed to show elected servants that it is a wise way to go to go and go and go with electricity powered cars like you see the Colonel waving from that blue green model. With the tax benefits that are now allowed, more than a few folks are green with envy, and will be blue if they do not get Zap-ped for themselves!
Colonel Isom, a wise man provided these wise words from wise men:
Experience is a dear teacher,
but fools will learn at no other.
You cannot teach a man anything;
you can only help him find it within himself.
Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) Italian physicist and astronomer.
Time is the best teacher, unfortunately it kills all its students.
Knowledge is experience. Anything else is just information.
-Albert Einstein, Swiss-American Physicist
Life teaches none but those who study it.
V. O. Kliuchevsky
Spoon feeding in the long run teaches us nothing but the shape of the spoon.
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
-Mark Twain, American Writer
George Washington, historians tell us was not "well educated", because he was not heavily "schooled" having not attended college (at William and Mary like Thomas Jefferson, Harvard like John Adams, or Princeton like James Madison), yet Harvard Professor Alfred Bushnell Hart wrote that George Washington was the BEST EDUCATED of the Founding Fathers.
Write to me if you wish to know why GW was the Best Educated.
P.S. You might like to see what Colonel Isom and Dr. Ben Franklin have been up to in recent days with their experiments with this new-fangled thing called "Electricity" (Other than of course that enhancement of mail service by Postmaster General Franklin named Electric Mail or E-Mail for short.)
