"Corruption in government makes most people boiling mad, and there certainly has been plenty in recent months to get mad about – buyable cops and crooked sheriffs and mysteriously well-off figures connected with the federal government.

"It is of course proper to get sore at crime and graft, but aim your anger at the right targets. If some city or county or federal employe [sic] is dishonorable, he ought to be dishonored. But let us not dishonor ALL government people for the sins of a very few, unless we are ready to dishonor government itself – which is us."
