The Peace President?

Some people smarter than me have taken the major speeches given by all US Presidents and made frequency counts of the words therein. Click here to see those words nicely assembled in what are known as 'tag clouds', with more prominent words appearing bigger.
I went through these using the handy slider and couldn't help noticing two interesting things.

  • Every single one of these speeches contains the word 'war'
  • Not one of these speeches contains the word 'peace'
Funny how statistics can reveal the true nature of a culture.
