The wisdom of Winston Churchill (part 2)

"The greatest lesson in life
          is to know that even fools are right sometimes."

Winston Churchill (1874-1965)

I'm happy to believe this, and goodness knows I have been a fool at times, it's somewhat comforting to know that I might nevertheless have been right on a few of those occasions….

It is one mark of a decent intellect that, from time to time, the possibility of being wrong is honestly entertained, however briefly….



I'd like to apply Churchill's wisdom in the political sphere, even when the going gets a bit fuddled or bogs down with the refrain "Don't go there"………..I'd like to be generous in the case of the present crew of pols sitting in Congress and cavorting on the campaign trail, but for too many of them, a re-classification to "Fool" would be the necessary first step, and that would necessarily be a step up….
