"So much good has been credited to this man that the mountain of evil has all been covered over, aleve in canada sanitized and washed clean by years of selective facts, aleve in canada induced fiction and outright lies.   That such a portrait continues to exist today and remains a solidly pervasive rendering for many is testament to the constant re-packaging, aleve in canada enabling and embellishing of a sordid historical past that has been obfuscated in many history books.
