A footnote of note

December 31st, 2011 by Vader

The term “intellectual” is one frequently found in descriptions of political groupings and presumably refers to writers, artists, poets, philosophers, and other idlers whose influence is considerably greater than their numbers or contribution would warrant.

Thus Gordon Corrigan, The Second World War: A Military History, in a footnote to a discussion of prewar French politics.

His Majesty: “The Ivy League, how many divisions does it have?”

As His Majesty well knows, the Ivy League is worthy many divisions. All, alas, arrayed on the other side.
