"Churchill was not even 25 years of age when he wrote that."

The man was brilliant, brave and blunt -- oh, and I think he was learning disabled in his youth. An extraordinary man. Haven't seen his kind since.

I've read that he was diagnosed as being barely above retarded when he was a child.

I'll take that to mean merely misunderstood. He must have had a hard life coming up.

We could sure use a world leader like that now. His resolution can only be matched by our own President.

Of course, Churchill didn't have England's press to fight off every time he did something either.
