Quote of the Day: Mencken!

The great H.L Mencken wrote the following in 1923:

I have often pointed out how politics, under democracy, invariably translates itself from the domain of logical ideas to the domain of mere feelings, usually simple fear.

And that was before he covered the Scopes monkey trial.
