Great Men

Isn't it comforting to know
that many "great" men of history
have contributed to
our present state of misery.

    Cynical? Perhaps. My many years of reading history and observing men's behavior in all spheres of life, convince me that every generation has inherited the faults and problems of the previous one right up to our day. This is not a criticism of your remark to my grook, just my defense. Thanks for reading to day. C.L.
