Taking a closer look ...

... at Sacco, Vanzetti, and Upston Sinclair: Sliming a Famous Muckraker.


  1. Hi, Frank,

    This post lends some backing to a view I've long held ... that extremists - to the left and to the right - would have the public believe that truth resides not in the individual, not in the words or the works of that individual, but in the social leaning of that individual ...

    Over time, one meets both saints and sinners on both ends of the social spectrum ...

  2. I am reminded of something Somerset Maugham said, that men are not of a piece, that blackguards can from time to time be kind and generous, just as saints can be mean and vicious. Salvation cannot be arrived at just by joining some faction or professing a point of view. Yet one sees many people trying to define themselves in just that way.
