Headline of the Day

Comes from the New York Times, circa 1945 in the aftermath of the Labour Party’s trouncing of Winston Churchill:

After winning the election by a wide margin, Prime Minister Atlee informed reporters that he, not Professor Laski, would be in charge of policy making. The New York Times duly ran a story with the droll headline: “Britain Not Run by Intellectuals.”

-Lawrence White, The Clash of Economic Ideas, p. 174.
