I Miss Bill Weld!

This is a great anecdote about the 68th Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts William F. Weld from his Wikipedia article:

William Weld has a sense of humor about his background; when Massachusetts Senate president Billy Bulger publicly teased him about his ancestors having come over on the Mayflower, Weld rose on the dais with a correction: “Actually, they weren’t on the Mayflower. They sent the servants over first to get the cottage ready.”
