Sunday Quotations: Twain, Mencken, And O’Rourke

“That’s the difference between governments and individuals. Governments don’t care, individuals do.”

Mark Twain

“Every decent man is ashamed of the government he lives under.”

H.L. Mencken

“The mystery of government is not how Washington works but how to make it stop.”

P.J. O’Rourke

Someone’s got to do the horse-tradin.’    There’s a fine line between ego-gratification and public service.
