Cincinnatus

A statue of Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus in Cincinnati, Ohio, honoring the man who became Rome’s dictator during a period of need. After the invaders were defeated, he gave up his power to return to farming. (This is, indeed, much like the life of Harry S. Truman.)

A modern gentleman casually inserts germane references to Cincinnatus into conversation.

(The less intelligent modern gentleman to whom he is conversing notes the subject as something to research afterward.)
