Confucius Analect of the Week, July 15, 2011

“This is certainly the limit!  I have yet to meet a man who, on observing his own faults, blamed himself!”  (James R. Ware, Chapter V, Verse 27)

Do you suppose Confucius foresaw American and European politicians, their economic advisers, and government-appointed regulators trying to escape blame for their roles in the financial crisis of 2007-09, the Great Recession, and risks of sovereign default?

Historian Milton W. Landis uses "Larrys Creek Covered Bridge" since it crosses Larrys Creek, and notes this was the name used by other local historians.[8][11] Larrys Creek is named for Larry Burt, who was the first settler at the mouth of the creek when the surveyors came through in 1769.[9] Landis acknowledges the "Cogan House" name, and says the bridge has also been known by the names of "several tenants who lived in the little farm adjacent" to it.[8][11]
While Landis does not give these different names, two other names for the bridge are known and may come from some of these tenants. The first of these is "Day's Bridge" and it is clear this is another name for the Cogan House Covered Bridge.[12][13][14] The second of these, "Plankenhorn Bridge", is a name in a list of existing and vanished covered bridges in Lycoming County. Although the association of this name with the Cogan House Covered Bridge is not made explicitly, it is described as still standing on Larrys Creek and being north of a bridge in Mifflin Township. This is the only known covered bridge that meets those criteria
