WASHINGTONIAN, n. A Potomac tribesman who exchanged the privilege of governing himself for the advantage of good government. In justice to him it should be said that he did not want to.
They took away his vote and gave instead The right, when he had earned, to _eat_ his bread. In vain --he clamors for his "boss," pour soul, To come again and part him from his roll. --Offenbach Stutz
~ Ambrose Bierce (July 24, 1842 - January 11, 1914)
