foolish. writer said..

"Everyone, including my friends, neighbors, and family members
told me that Henry Ford was the sole inventor of the engine and the
automobile and in fact Henry was probably the country's smartest
man; maybe even smarter than Levi Garrett.".

i have a friend who said this was the 1st time a foreign (new england)
football team has won the superbowl.lol.. see what happens
when you trust rumors and just plain dumb people.

as for levi garrett, dont know how smart of a man he was.
but he only went west to sell demin to miners to use as
tents, but discovered they needed pants that were more
durable and the denim was idea for that purpose.
(think thats how i remember it from the history channel)

Wrong, different set of dogs. ;-) You probably never heard of GARRET snuff. There's little towns in Texas named "Dime Box" and "Old Dime Box". You want to take a guess as to what it was in reference to.
ok, im thinking about the wrong person. but the point is, the writer in that articles is blasting ford because the rumors and incorrect information he received was not true. i hate to defend ford, but is that the fault of ford? did they ever mislead people to think he invented anything? if so, wheres that info?

Levi Strauss is the jeans dude.
Leif Garrett was a 60's pop star.
Leif Erriccson was an explorer.
Mrs Garrett was the Drummond's housekeeper before going to the Facts of Life.

Isn't word association fun?
