Bonfires of the Knownothings
“When we gathered in the woodsmoke after each day’s ride, I tried to remember this quote: ‘There are three things that no one can do to the entire satisfaction of anyone else: make love, poke the fire and run a newspaper.’”
—Attributed to William Allen White (1868-1944), renowned newspaper editor, politician and progressive, 1917.
