Herbert Hoover

What we had, up to now, seen as an unglamorous concrete block plugging Black Canyon at its narrowest point was actually a miracle of modern genius fashioned by zealous workers backlit by the blazing, relentless desert sun willing to give their lives that the name of Herbert Hoover might echo into the centuries. It makes you wonder if Ramses The Second was a worthless asshole like Hoover and put up a huge complex of temples to make some work for people after he fucked up the Egyptian economy beyond repair.
