All things beautiful - a website I've not seen before, asks, "who are the ten worst Americans?"
Not an easy list.... Are we talking about the status of one's soul? Or that one mistake that creates lots and lots of other mistakes?
It's all comparative, and sometimes good appears accidentally.... A few of these people have done just one or two things that are so awful, God have mercy on their souls. And others barely deserve mercy, I think. Fortunately, it is not me making this decision.
Harry J. Anslinger: Our current prohibition.
Alfred P. Sloan: destroyed trolley system and enslaved us to the car.
Henry Kissinger: Biafra, anyone?
Chief Justice Roger Taney;
Allen Welsh Dulles;
Irenee du Pont, [Nazi sympathizer, and anti-Roosevelt Conspirator]
Captain John Mason, who led the massacre of 600-700 Pequots.
Wayne B. Wheeler, [anti-Saloon league]
J.C. Bancroft Davis [corporations are people, too}
And J. Edgar Hoover. Of course.
I'm sure there are people personally nastier. Except, perhaps, for Kissinger.
