There is much ...

... in what he said: Menckenmania. (Mencken frequently wrote back to those who had written to complain or denounce: "There is much in what you say."

  1. Good to see the spirit of Mencken lives on. If we were back in 30s Germany, I'm sure we'd see such wonderful patriotic deleting of undesired truths by the loyal press. Stand behind the war-makers, Frank; they're good people. They just love murdering people...just a little vice. from a brood of vipers.

  2. Just to add, any sense of irony in your response to a dose of Menkien wisdom being to delete it from view? OK to post about him when he's at a comforting distance of death & can be absorbed into the edifice of educational thought, though it's not exactly difficult to see how you'd be responding were he alive now and illuminating such obvious state manipulations as the "War on Terror". Though if it's someone else who pathetically deleted the undesired post, apologies...
