It is a little known fact, but if you put a cigar in a little baby's mouth, he/she will look exactly like Churchill.

For some unknown reason, new mothers do not see the humor in this.

Harry, where are Winston Churchill and Harry Truman when we need them most? Thanks for sharing this! It is a shame that history shows that Churchill rose to the occasion during the war. Chamberlain knew that Great Britain was ill-equipped to tackle Hitler and, as a result, Hitler took over much of Europe as an appeasement by those who would form the Allies of WWII. Then, after the war, people literally crapped on Churchill and shuffled him aside, not acknowledging what he did to pull together the people of Great Britain. How quickly we forget those who rose up as great leaders.

Maybe one word to show that the "great man" had his other side, Tonypandy. Still a sore point today amongst some in south Wales

My favorite was “a lie will get halfway around the world, before the truth has it’s pants on” This before the internet.

At the end of his life, he served once more as Prime Minister, but his health was very poor by then. He was really highly regarded and got a pretty spectacular sendoff. I recently watched a 3 part biographical documentary on his career. The new film, Finest Hour, is a moderately accurage rendition of what happened in the weeks before Dunkirk, but they didn't do a good job of covering that he had to sacrifice the Canadian troops, which were used to fend off the Germans that were closing in on Dunkirk.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
