Over at EconLog, David Henderson  and Alberto Mingardi  celebrate – with some of their favorite quotations from the birthday boy – H.L. Mencken’s birthday. Regular Cafe patrons will not be surprised to read me here repeat my favorite Mencken insight:
The saddest life is that of a political aspirant under democracy. His failure is ignominious and his success is disgraceful.
This quotation was my Quotation of the Day back on November 8, 2011 .
