Today is the birthday of "Mad Jack" Churchill. (Born 1906, died, March 8, 1996.) He was a world class eccentric. He went to war in WWII armed with a broadsword and a longbow. (The latter was successfully used to dispatch several German soldiers.) He later became a devoted surfer. He was truly an original character.
