Grilled Millionaire
Chapel Hill, NC, December 5, 1938
Franklin D. Roosevelt

You may have heard, for six years, that I was about to plunge the nation into war; that you and your little brothers would be sent to the bloody fields of battle in Europe; that I was driving the nation into bankruptcy; and that I breakfasted every morning on a dish of grilled millionaire!

Actually, I am an exceedingly mild-mannered person, a practitioner of peace, both domestic and foreign, a believer in the capitalistic system, and for my breakfast, a devotee of scrambled eggs!
