Hail to the Artist-in-Chief

I don't know about you guys, but I'm a compulsive doodler. Even when I'm listening at meetings, my pen has to be drawing something. My napkins at bars are always scrawled with horrible sketches. In fact, I don't think I've ever gotten through a flight attendants' pre-flight seatbelt rundown, without writing something on the air-sickness bag.
Anyway, all that's to say, I'm glad I'm not alone. I saw this link from the Presurfer, and what a find! Apparently, this book of Presidential Doodles is filled with two centuries' worth of executive scribbles. And while the website gives you just a smattering of what's included (with drawings from Harrison to Harding, to Roosevelt, to Reagan), I know this has just jumped to the top of my to-buy list.
