About

“Go West, young man, go West. There is health in the country, and room away from our crowds of idlers and imbeciles.”
~~ reported conversation between Horace Greeley and Josiah Bushnell Grinnell in 1833 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Go_West,_young_man)

“Washington(DC) is not a place to live in. The rents are high, the food is bad, the dust is disgusting and the morals are deplorable. Go West, young man, go West and grow up with the country.” ~~ written by Horace Greeley in 1861 (ibid)
