High Coo – Sept 12 – Happy Birthday H.L. Mencken

Henry Louis Mencken (b. 9/12/1880)

“Famed for his rapier wit as much as his ill-temperament, Henry Louis (H.L.) Mencken rose to national prominence as a journalist and correspondent for the Baltimore Sun.” See https://allthatsinteresting.com/hl-mencken-quotes

Two of my favorite Mencken quotes are: “After all is said and done … a lot more is said than done.” and “When somebody says it’s not about the money, it’s about the money.”

Today’s haiku: Happy Birthday H.L. Mencken

Cynical somedays

fortunately, do not last.

Persevere, my friend.

Note: today is also National Day of Encouragement. I wonder what Mencken would have said about this. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Day_of_Encouragement
