AUTHOR: Huey Pierce Long (1893–1935)
QUOTATION: So I came to Washington, where I knew I would be farther away from America than I could be on some foreign shore; not that I do not respect this as a good part of America but in its general routine the heart of America is felt less here than at any place I have ever been.
