Sturgeon’s Law anticipated

The second Sturgeon’s Law, or Sturgeon’s Revelation, is “Ninety percent of everything is crud.”

However, as Ecclesiastes says, “There is nothing new under the sun.” So I shouldn’t have been surprised to find this quote:

Nine-tenths of the people were created so
you would want to be with the other tenth.
Horace Walpole, 1717 – 1797

Thanks to Mark Leeper, who supplied this for The MT Void Vol. 27, No. 36.
