As it is the characteristic of great wits to say much in few words, so small wits seem to have the gift of speaking much and saying nothing.

Synopsis:
By the standards of his day, George Q. Cannon was no ordinary man. A noted politician, businessman, orator, educator, publisher, and financier, he was proclaimed by major newspapers upon his death as "one of the most widely known men in America," "the Mormon Richelieu," "a man of great ability and powerful influence." Yet despite his secular prominence, the sands of time might have cloaked his name in obscurity were it not for his contributions as a spiritual leader--a prophet, seer and revelator, a man as willing to represent his Maker within the walls of prison as within the halls of Congress.
