Stroll through a used bookstore and you'll see stacks of very good books by authors who are now barely remembered, if remembered at all.

Go to the blues clubs in Memphis and you'll hear musicians who are as good as - and often better than - many famous performers.

Have an acquaintance with a broad collection of people in your community and you will know individuals who are far more astute and insightful than many members of Congress and probably more than several presidents.

Fame does not mean substance.
