Democracy leads to Hell

One of my Ottawa Correspondents (I have so many, I have almost run out of fingers on my left hand) reminds us this morning that:

“Sin is the most democratic activity in the world. Anyone can do it without any training or any accomplice, in public or in private.”

I used to write the “Sunday Spectator” in some atrocious Ottawa rag, from which this correspondent has also been retired. Jim is more succinct. …

It’s fun to tell the truth, as a private face in public places. … But we can’t really expect to be paid for it.
