A fantastic read from an anonymous old ink-slinger from The Literary Digest" captured the excitement of the 1927 Lindbergh flight:
"No fiction writer could have contrived a story more perfect and right in it's details...In a few short days an unknown lad has become the hero of the world. His name is on the lips of more people than any under the sun. His face etched in more minds than any living human. The narrative question of the story, 'Will he make it?/ is on everybody's lips, from President to beggar."
