LINNAEUS: BILL O'REILLY, RUSH LIMBAUGH, AND DICK CHENEY ARE THE PROTOTYPICAL AMERICANS


In the second edition of his Systema Naturae (published in 1740), Linneaus -- for the first time ever -- classified the human species as a species of mammals. He also ordered the human mammal by geography.

His official name for the American human is: homo americanus rufus cholericus rectus regitur consuetudine.

Reddish choleric man, walking tall, governed by habit.

For those of us occasionally watching Fox, or sporadically awake during the past 8 years: How Nostradamic of Mr. Linneaus!

I have in my lap a copy of Omega Minor.

This is great writing.

Wow.
