"Th' dead ar-re always pop'lar. I knowed a society wanst to vote a
monyment to a man an' refuse to help his fam'ly, all in wan night."
Mr. Dooley (Peter Finley Dunne, 1867-1936)
And I knew one that made a national holiday of a man's birthday but,
contrary to the strongly expressed desire of his family and the
elementary requirements of justice, showed no interest in finding and
prosecuting his murderers.
