LEPRECHAUN

The original Irish name for these figures of folklore is lobaircin, meaning small-bodied fellow. In Irish mythology, a leprechaun is a type of male faerie said to inhabit the island of Ireland.

They are a class of “faerie folk” associated in Irish mythology and folklore, as with all faeries, with the Tuatha Dé Danann and other quasi-historical peoples said to have inhabited Ireland before the arrival of the Celts.

Leprechauns usually take the form of old men who enjoy partaking in mischief. Their trade is that of a cobbler or shoemaker. They are said to be very rich, having many treasure crocks buried during war-time. According to legend, if anyone keeps an eye fixed upon one, he cannot escape, but the moment the gaze is withdrawn, he vanishes.

GEORGE S. McGOVERN

George McGovern, An Improbable Icon Of Anti-War Movement

If we could only find another American like him in current times.

If George McGovern often seemed miscast as a presidential candidate, he was at least as improbable as an icon of the anti-war movement.

The Vietnam War gave birth to an opposition movement unlike any America had seen in its previous wars. It was young, unconventional and counter-cultural, defiant of authority and deeply suspicious of government.
