    I have always loved H.L. Mencken. He always gets straight to the point. Here is one of my favorites. “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”- H.L. Mencken

  2. I only just started glancing at the wikipedia article on him, but he does seem like a clever and incisive thinker. Very relevant today, I feel.
