"A collection of the master's exuberant political reportage... It is Mencken's festive air and the unchained delight he takes in balderdash and bamboozle that are so lacking in today's political commentators." -- Katherine A. Powers, Boston Globe
This collection of seventy political pieces drawn from Mencken's famous Monday columns in the Baltimore Evening Sun during the twenties and thirties shows the Sage of Baltimore at his satirical best.
