RACCOONS IN THE WHITE HOUSE: It’s too ‘Cool’idge

See that long chain?  This was “bling” back in the day.

Not much to say here.  Slate recently did a brief post about pets in the White House, and they mentioned that Calvin Coolidge’s wife, Grace, had a pet raccoon.  There was a picture of the woman and her angry looking companion together.  Apparently raccoons weren’t synonymous with rabies in the early 20th century.
