"It takes gall to sit down to a typewriter at a certain hour every afternoon to confront a long mile of white paper and presume to tell the people what it is all about to the extent of from 500 to 1,000 words. Tell them what what is all about, says you. Oh, just anything and everything."
-- Westbrook Pegler

As a working journalist, I cannot even begin to say what a hero Westbrook Pegler is to me.
