Quote from Wiki:

Occidental’s coal interests were represented for many years by attorney and former U.S. Senator Albert Arnold Gore, Sr., among others. Gore, who had a longtime close friendship with Hammer, became the head of the subsidiary Island Creek Coal Company, upon his election loss in the Senate. Much of Occidental’s coal and phosphate production was in Tennessee, the state Gore represented in the Senate, and Gore owned shares in the company. Former Vice President Albert Arnold Gore, Jr. received much criticism from environmentalists, when the shares passed to the estate after the death of Albert Gore, Sr., and Albert Gore, Jr. was a son and the executor of the estate.[41][42] Albert Gore Jr. did not exercise control over the shares, which were eventually sold when the estate closed.[43][44]

Hammer was very fond of Albert Gore, Jr., and in 1984 under Hammer’s guidance Gore, Jr. sought Tennessee’s senate office previously held by Howard Baker. Hammer supposedly promised Gore, Sr. that he could make his son the president of the United States. It was under Hammer’s encouragement and support that Gore Jr. sought the Democratic Party presidential nomination in 1988.

How damaging can it be for the African-American minority, that the black urban culture is everything that the most virulent 19th century racists accused Negroes of being: hyper-violent, sex-obsessed, ignorant, brutal, and incapable of being civilized. And here the same elements of violence, sex-obsession, willful ignorance, and brute force, are all glorified in contemporary black urban culture, in the name of ‘keeping it real.’ The KKK, or what is left of them, hardly have to bother with burning crosses or organizing lynch mobs any more, not when the urban black population has taken over donning their own chains.

The devotees of the party in power are smug and arrogant. The devotees of the party out of power are insane.

[Megan McArdle, 2003 – at biblical times of Asymmetrical Information, when Megan was on the Right]

Happened by chance to this quote, the post and thread – and nostalgia washed over. Not for being young [relatively] and smart [that, too] – but sharing in their company. Ah, the wit, the civility (compared to contemporary discourse), the intellectual sparkle – how I miss them. Another thought: that nobody learns the lesson. Read the post @the link and you’ll know it.

Interesting, how many 20 to 30-somethings now, hearing the name Megan McArdle, will confuse her with despicable Meghan Markle?


Megan is still churning out aphorisms – regrettably, now on Twitter:

My working theory of bitcoin arguments: there’s a small cadre of experts with sophisticated theories about what bitcoin’s good for, surrounded by lots of speculators, anarchists, & goldbugs. The conversation is driven by the experts. But the price of bitcoin is driven by the rest
