A lot of wonderful things can be said about Truman, particularly his attitude to the office of the President.

It was a silly idea and one given far too much attention by Truman.
In this episode I give what detail is available on the idea, discuss how and why Truman pushed the policy, and showcase it's obvious flaws.
