Re: “From Charleston to Los Angeles, New York to Miami, here are the bottom feeders of public office

Mark Twain often criticized corrupt politicians, lamenting the low morals of public officials. "it's so hard to find men of a so high so type of morals," he said, that they'll stay bought."

While living in New York, Twain made many pointed remarks about corruption at Tammany Hall. After the death of a certain Tammany leader, Twain told a paper reporter: " I refused to attend his funeral. But I wrote a very nice letter explaining that I approved." From: The Wit and Wisdom of Mark Twain edited by Alex Ayers.

Re: “Columbia, S.C. gang violence documentary will premiere at Manhattan Film Festival

"A violently active, dominating, intrepid youth---that is what I am after...I will have no intellectual training. Knowledge is ruin to my young men."---Adolf Hitler, What the Hitler Youth and the SA were back in the day,(with apologies to those misguided youth), have now degraded into a worse category of hoodlum. These fellows are as bad if not worse than any White Supremest criminal organization. Mark Twain once observed, "A good legible label is usually worth, for information, a ton of significant attitude and expression in a historical picture." This picture to be presented at the film festival filled with its propaganda brings to mind Mark Twain's observation, "Concerning the difference between man and the jackass:some say observers hold that there isn't any. But this wrongs the jackass."
