The Land of the Free and the Home of the All Night Diner

And now I'm home! Back in America! I landed in Philly this time, but last time I landed in Newark, right near New York, and I got to see the Statue of Liberty out the window of the airplane as I landed. It was really neat. So, to follow up from last/this weeks Monarchs, I give you, American Presidents! (and the pretty Lady)
