    Perhaps you could ask your readers for their own PILF lists.

      Patrick, Custer would be at the top of my pilf list. The north didn’t have as many dashing cavaliers as the rebs, but our boy general could leave his spurs under my bed any night!

        ummmm… PILF= President I’d Like to F***…I don’t think Custer was ever a president, but heck, these Southern fetishists think they can rewrite history so maybe in some weird alternate twilight zone, Custer was the president of the country of Jack Danielsville or Duck Dynasty.

        Personally, the top of my PILF list would be Taft and his “Cincinnati Shaft”… I’m a superficial size queen, I’m not ashamed to admit it…

          Oops, Liberty–I thought PILF referred to “people I’d like to…” in terms of civil war generalship. Anyway, no one familiar with my posts would think I am a Southern fetishist!

            But you want to sleep with Custer? Srsly?

            Custer was hoping to run for president if he won the Montana Democratic Primary.

            I’ve heard that, contrary to modern political experience, turnout was MUCH higher than anticipated.

            Not sure what “I’d like to…” in terms of civil war generalship.” could possibly mean.

    Too funny for words. I say, “Good for Grant.”

    Professor Simpson,

    One has to ask what periodicals are in the waiting rooms of the ASU School of Historical, Philosophical, and Religious Studies!

    Tiger Beat? Us?

    How else would you be up on this “information”!

      Never underestimate the interest of family members and others. Besides, I hang out at Barrett, The Honors College.

    While Grant’s reputation as president has been rehabilitated somewhat in recent years, I had no idea that it had gone this far.

      Women love men who aren’t narcissistic and Grant if the fourth least narcissistic. Of course, Millard Fillmore was not only non-narcissistic, he was a non-entity as well.

    Another crush on Ulyss — thanks to Franklin Simmons. I found this while looking for the statue that Grant was posing for in May 1866 — while being interviewed by the editor of the Lewiston (Maine) journal. It’s basically a Rolling Stones type interview, because while Simmons is sculpting him, Grant is uncharacteristically unguarded and gives many candid opinions to the editor that he would not give at another time.

    (I discovered the interview in “Let Us Have Peace” (p. 137) — thanks, Brooks!)

    Anyway, to return to the topic at hand, “Catherine” states on her blog:

    “Out of all of the Marble sculptures [in the Portland, Maine, museum of art] I did have one particular favorite, probably because I have a history crush on Ulysses S. Grant (what, you don’t?)”

    (It’s about halfway down the page.)

      I hear you, sister. He’s not a macho man, but he’s a MAN. I don’t know any woman over the age of forty (of those who know who he is) who doesn’t *appreciate* him. Woman that age Know what they Like in a Man.
