He'd love it today.......................

     Edison had come to despise government bureaucrats, seeing them as a blight on democracy.  In his disgust he had turned down a medal for his defense work, arguing that he deserved it no more than any other member of the Naval Consulting Board.  He said he had lost interest in weapons of war—not to mention respect for the patent and copyright clause of the U. S. Constitution, "and the other 27,946 books filled with laws."

-Edmund Morris, Edison
