About Scanlyze

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Scanlyze is an online magazine of essays, commentary, satire, and analysis. Were we half as clever, for inspiration we would take Mark Twain, Ambrose Bierce, Swift, Montaigne, or Seneca.

“The men who create power make an indispensable contribution to the Nation’s greatness, but the men who question power make a contribution just as indispensable, especially when that questioning is disinterested, for they determine whether we use power or power uses us.”

John F. Kennedy, October 26, 1963

  7. Henry, I am an historian researching what happened at the Davis Cup Matches in Cleveland Heights in 1969 and the bombing of Rodin’s Thinker in May 1970. Would you please contact me?
