More from the Bard of Baltimore #1LinerWeds

I feature a lot of H. L. Mencken quotes, largely because there are so many of them and they appeal to my irascible, grumpy self.

One-Liner Wednesday is brought to you each week by Linda Hill and this station. Now a word about Bounty paper towels. They absorb like magic!

Of course, now we have ketchup bottles that squirt where you aim them…


#1LinerWeds from H. L. Mencken


Election season is upon us here in the United States, and the usual rhetoric is ramping up, although I can’t imagine how it would get any more strident than it already has. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: the two authors whose books are worth reading during election season are P. J. O’Rourke and H. L. Mencken. Mencken died sixty years ago, the year I was born, but his wisdom is eternal.


One-Liner Wednesday is sponsored by Linda Hill over at her blog. I’ll add the link when I get one…

Another #1linerWeds From The Bard of Baltimore

Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats.
– H. L. Mencken

Don’t know why I like this quote, but I do.
