“I have not read this author’s books, and if I have read them I have forgotten what they were about.”
These words are reported as having been uttered in our midst not a hundred years ago, publicly, from the seat of justice, by a civic magistrate.

This generalisation, it ought to be promptly said in the interests of eternal justice (and recent friendship), does not apply to the United States of America.
