Overheard at Table 4: Cryptoquotes - Upon Books by Henry C Rogers

 "Upon books the collective education of the race depends; they are the sole instruments of registering, perpetuating and transmitting thought."
— Henry C. Rogers

Not sure this was ever true.

Well, tweets do not transmit thought.

Astute comment, kb83, and stated in well under 140 characters!
May 29, 2017, 2:45 am
So kb83 could have just tweeted it!

tweets only transmit thoughts if the tweeterer has any

Does that last thought apply to our Tweeterer-in-Chief?

I pride myself in not knowing before now that tweeting has to be under 140 characters. Never tweeted and probably never will.
June 29, 2018, 6:05 pm
I do not tweet eithrr.
September 29, 2018, 7:35 am

The failing @maiwallace claims 140 character limit for tweets! Character limit was changed to 280 in 09/2017. FAKE NEWS! SAD!

When we passed notes in junior high, they were at least a full page long, with drawings and jokes, and actually we wrote them during class and then exchanged them between classes, in the hallways. It was probably my favorite part of school, and I still have a big bagful of friends' long notes in my memory box.
