Gwb’s Eulogy

Ramesh: Nice Johnsonian comment, and of course correct. Any person who

truly believed that “bigotry and prejudice” are the worst things human

beings are capable of, would have had to have had an extremely limited

acquaintance with human nature.

However, it was Johnson who said: “In lapidary inscriptions a man is not

upon oath,” and I think the same principle can be applied to funeral

tributes. GWB’s remark was just the cant of our age, and I don’t think

should be taken seriously.
