    No mention of coffee whatsoever.

    I agree wholeheartedly. Max House's charitable works too set him apart from many. Local media chose to give more coverage to a local downtown character who was clearly suffering from mental illness for decades. Media and some people noted her salty language directed at complete strangers and children as if that kind of behavior should be acceptable when it is not. Max House helped many, many people; she did not. Yet, local media and people who never encountered the disturbed soul in the streets crowed her praise, perhaps out of guilt for not doing something about her situation while failing to recognize a giving and talented man.

    Dr. Maxwell House was, indeed a distinguished person. His many accomplishments, within his chosen field, were recognized publicly when he was appointed Lt. Governor. I am confident that someone possessing his ability and character did not make the positive contributions to the betterment of people's lives; that he made during his lifetime, so that he could make the front page of The Telegram, or be the subject of the top story on a televised newscast. Dr. House obviously chose to dedicate his life to doing things, in his chosen field, that would contribute to the well-being of others. Obviously, he was not interested in achievinng some sort of celebrity status.
