Nothing's changed.........

Robert E. Lee quote - 1863

"It appears we have appointed our worst generals to command
forces, and our most gifted and brilliant to edit newspapers! In fact, I
discovered by reading newspapers that these editor/geniuses plainly saw all my
strategic defects from the start, yet failed to inform me until it was too

"Accordingly, I'm readily willing to yield my command to these
obviously superior intellects, and I'll, in turn, do my best for the Cause
by writing editorials - after the fact."

Apparently things haven't changed much in the last 140+ years
except that now they do it on TV, radio, and print media.
