… that today is Dewey Defeats Truman NOT Day? When Harry S. Truman went to bed on November 2 in 1948, he was losing the election for president of the United States to Thomas E. Dewey. Chicago Daily Tribune printers were out on strike so the editors had to guess at the outcome of the election and picked the wrong one. The next morning, Truman learned he had won. The famous photo of Truman holding up the paper was taken on this day.

Today’s Inspirational Quote:

“For myself, losing is not coming second. It’s getting out of the water knowing you could have done better. For myself, I have won every race I’ve been in.”
