President Calvin Coolidge earned his nickname “Silent Cal” by saying no more than absolutely necessary. One Sunday morning his wife, Grace, was ill and unable to attend church with him. When the President returned home, Grace asked him what the sermon was about. “Sin,” was his reply. Slightly exasperated, the First Lady asked, “Well, what did he have to say about it?”

The President’s reply: “He was against it.”
