Today is H.L. Mencken's birthday - a day I honor every year in the memory of a man whose wit and wisdom surpassed many. I suppose there are some things some people might not have liked about him, but his words have accompanied me well through the years, and so I leave you with this quote, in honor of the upcoming Greek (and next year's U.S.) elections:

Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.
