Acquiring a dog may be the only opportunity a human ever has to choose a relative.

It not infrequently happens that persons without any other special qualification than the drama of their lives are precipitated into important political positions.

Don't know what that says about me, but I never chose a dog or cat in my life, they always chose me. I had absolutely no say in this.
As to politicians, I better keep my mouth shut, but I agree with Merriam.

I love the last one. I swear,if some guy fell off the Empire State building and survived,our media and a lot of other people would make him into a perfect presidential candidate.Who cares what the qualifications might be..being famous is IT these days. Look at the reality shows for proof of that.

Charles Edward Merriam, Jr. died in 1953. Nothing has changed in politics, just we have more media to spread the drama.
