  •  Emerson was an interesting guy. (10+ / 0-)

    He reminds me of my stepfather - very sharp with his sarcastic wit.  On a number of occasions, it took me over an hour to figure out he had just insulted me!

    But I love him, anyway :-)

    I have to wonder, did Emerson actually sell any of those swimming machines?  And didn't they rust?  Or did they have galvanized steel back then?

    Love your diaries - always iintriguing characters!

    •  Good question (6+ / 0-)

      I don't know if he sold any. Obviously plugging them in the book, but he invented it in the last few years of his life.

      Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman
