One of my favorite quotes from Mencken, and one I find occasion to use frequently, is: "You can never go broke underestimating the taste of the American public." How often in the past few years have I wished he were around to comment on the political scene, along with Walt Kelly (who said "We have met the enemy and he is us.")

REMEMBERING YOU TODAY. WE NEED MORE POLITICAL PUNDITS LIKE YOU, BUT THEY ARE SO RARE. TRUE JOURNALISM IS BECOMING A THING OF THE PAST. ANYWAY, YOU ARE APPRECIATED AND WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN. REST IN PEACE.

When was the last time a reporter wrote something that people read for the beauty of the language, or the keen wit?Your fame will wane, as it has, but forever and periodically burst forth effulgent--because you were a towering original.

Rest In Peace. Nothing much has changed, in the areas that you wrote about, since 1948, but I must say that we could really use your outlook and opinions in today's world.

To the greatest master of American journalistic prose and the most trenchant observer and critic of every ill that affects the American body politic and the peculiar American psyche. Your like will not, unfortunately, probably ever be seen again. I hope everyone who reads this will find and read your priceless reporting on the Scopes trial.

From one Marylander to another - I'll forgive some sinner and wink my eye at a homely girl. You are remembered as one of the greatest American journalists, satirists and the greatest student of the English language. We sorely need you now.
