Happy Birthday to Ambrose Bierce, b. 24 June 1842


Patriotism, n.- Combustible rubbish ready to the torch of any one ambitious to illuminate his name.  In Dr. Johnson’s famous dictionary patriotism is defined as the last resort of a scoundrel. With all due respect to an enlightened but inferior lexicographer I beg to submit it is the first.                                                                                          –                                                               -Ambrose Bierce, (24 Jun 1842-1914)


San Francisco editor and writer Bierce lived at 330 Guerrero St. in the Mission District.
