"No one in this world has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby." - H.L. Mencken
I got so fascinated preparing for today's blog, I found so many interesting things about a rather ordinary person-cum-popular icon among today's ill-informed, yet passionate youth, that I am only halfway ready to write it. They know absolutely NOTHING about this character, for if they did, they would see him for what he was - a tyrant with dictatorial ambitions that were cut short by an "untimely" death. But his image looks "cool" and makes lots of capital for anyone who puts it on a poster or a tee shirt. Hmm, practicing capitalism via the image of a man who despised it? Mencken was dead on. Hint: The guy rode a motorcycle.
See you tomorrow.
