The Egg

If you haven't read it yet.

Wonderful story.

To coin another sad truth no one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the american people. Mencken I believe.

I passed one who had slain thousands
and thousands more thronged at his side
and granted him a life of peace
with pennants waving gaily over his lands

and I passed one who had saved thousands
and one more came and sat by his side and
played to him on an ancient lyre
and kissed his hand on leave-taking

and the slayer and the savior
were one man
and the thousands slain and the thousands saved
were one man
and the throngs who attended the first
and the one who sang for the last
were one man
and I alone saw him

for I am he

As an interesting counterpoint to "The Egg", there's this: (Our Greatest Delusion), which I coincidentally discovered on the same day.
