There I was, reading Maggie's Farm when all of a sudden, there appeared, like a quest, the idiot idea of delving further into the names and histories of the poltroons. And, so I did.

You really cannot imagine a man like that alive in this day and age.  I'm surprised nobody ever wrote a book about him. I'm kind of amazed that they put his face on the 20 dollar note rather than some old geezer nobody ever heard of.
