H.L. Mencken

My pal Mr A.K. just sent me this email.

This is nice. A quotation that turned up in THE WIRE. I thought I better catch up with it on DVD while I had the time. It's from the final season and comes from a newspaperman with the Baltimore Sun, as he drinks away the night after being fired because of cutbacks. It's by H.L. Mencken.

“If, after I depart this vale, you ever remember me and have thought to please my ghost, forgive some sinner and wink your eye at some homely girl.”
