I tried to look up how many presidents have been grandfathers while serving in office. It’s pretty hard to look up because no one in the history of presidents has ever cared about whether or not they have grandchildren or will ever have grandchildren because it is truly one of the dumbest things to care about in the universe. But, if we were going to do some back-of-the-envelope guessing, I would estimate that like 85 percent of presidents had grandchildren before becoming presidents or while in office, seeing as how they were mostly all old white men, married to women, in eras when what women were supposed to do was have children, who then usually had children of their own, by the time the old white men got to be presidents.

Fast-food workers begin each week with uncertainty. They do not know how many hours they will work or when those hours will be. They do not know whether they will come up with the cash — and it is always cash — to make it to the job. They do not know if the lights will still be on when they get home. They do not know where, in a few months, home will be. They hunt for cheaper or easier or safer, knowing that to combine them is impossible.
