But I thought you meant the Reconstruction Finance Corporation,
started under the Herbert Hoover administration as a lame attempt to

Time stopped in November 1941, and I didn't see Hoover talking about
it on television, either<g>

If, as I was taught, Reconstruction was the period after the Civil
War, Mr. Ellerbe was awfully farsighted to have invented this, since
airplanes themselves didn't exist yet.
