Quote from Henry David Thoreau on Library Way in New York City. Taken on February 28, 2007. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

To a philosopher all news, as it is called, is gossip, and they who edit and read it are old women over their tea.”   —   Henry David Thoreau

(It sounds to me like he made this up when confronted with some “news” that everybody – save himself – already knew.  Better to sound pithy, than to appear ignorant!  And, I’m not one to impose current sensibilities on works, and thought processes, from days gone by, but by today’s standards Mr. HDT would probably be labeled a male chauvinist.  Perhaps, even a misogynist.  It’s a good thing you’re dead, Henry!  I know some chicks that would . . .  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
