    I’d hate to think Mencken’s idea was itself misunderstood, but: I guess the use of ‘any man’ instead of ‘anyone’ was simply a sign of his times.

      True. Back in his day, “man” was used in the generic sense to represent “person.”

    That’s quite an interesting saying to think about, an odd or quirky part being afflicts. But then it’s payback to see the misunderstandings, I guess. On the other hand, seeing ideas play out can turn up unintended consequences simply called misunderstanding.
