Never Give In!

Had he been a stable and equable man, Winston Churchill could never have inspired the nation. In 1940, when all the odds were against Britain, a leader of sober judgment might well have concluded that the country  was finished.

As Winston Churchill might have said in private: "I will never give in so long as Uncle Sam keeps sending me the checks!"

Didi Bailey, M.D. wrote in her psychiatric assessment of me in May 2009 that I had "grossly impaired judgment."

So much the better for me!
