The Stevens Point Journal (Wisconsin) September 9, 1891, says: ".... It is loaded with buckshot and scatters like a charge of bribery fired into a California legislature."
Heh..... Reminds me of this American Side by Side. I want one. I could have declared it hopeless and made an offer but I will never do that. The short term gain would not offset the loss of good will. I do belive that what goes around comes around. It may take longer than you have, but still.
I loved the quote.
