The amazing Herman Wouk

When you think that there are US Presidents 30 years younger than this guy who can't begin to express themselves half as clearly, this becomes inspirational!
“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.”

― Frédéric Bastiat (1801–1850), French economist

I've always like Herman Wouk.

My favorite book by him is City Boy...a kind of coming of age tale set in the Bronx during the 1920's. It was written in 1949, and held up very well.

Wouk has just turned 102.
