I have just finished reading Terry Teachout’s book about HLM. All in all it was rather enjoyable much like I imagine reading Mencken in first person might have been.

The ignoble lesson of Mencken is that there is no loneliness approaching that of a man on his deathbed who has been his own sycophant. He was obliged to deny mortality so he could edit the details of his own dying, and as it happens, Amerika continues to grant him the last laugh.

I am sure, if he were alive today it would not take him long to fill another book given the preposterous policies of the current administration. The danger that our fellow soldiers have committed can not be excused; it is an abuse of power in my opinion.

It has been a busy week of peace work and not much time for thinking critically about things in the way of literary expression. Slogans are about as far as it has gone.
