A New World's Oldest Person

The world has a new oldest person: 114-year-old Besse Cooper of Monroe, Georgia. Congratulations, Besse, and long may you reign! Besse was born in Tennessee on August 26, 1896, during the last year of Grover Cleveland's second term. She is among the last of the "Grover babies," children born during Cleveland's two administrations.
