We have arrived... H.L. Mencken

We have arrived.......

H.L. Mencken (born 1880 - died 1956) was a journalist, satirist, critic -- and a Democrat. He wrote this editorial while working for the Baltimore Evening Sun; it appeared in the July 26, 1920, edition:

"As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron."

----H.L. Mencken, The Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand."
