Will they start airbrushing out CHurchill's famous V for victory sign next? Has the world gone completely insane?
Yes, what would he think?
Long ago we were the Kings of all the animals and now we are Kings of all the history and tweak it the way we want it.
GweiI think the answer is yes, the world has gone mad.DavidWhen a secretary corrected a speech of his, rewording a sentence so as to avoid a final preposition, he restored it and wrote in the margin: This is the sort of arrant nonsense up with which I will not put! I can see him responding in like manner and drawing in an even bigger cigar. TaborThat is such a clever response! Thanks.
We have real problems. Removing a cigar from a picture taken 60+ years ago boils my blood. We are nit picking the details and letting all of Rome burn... So to speak.
Air brushing...you've opened up an interesting line of thought here. Too bad we can't airbrush the oil leak away.
Just had to look up your second reference, Dave, and see it also involves Winston - at Chequers of all places! There must be some photos of him without the cigar if they're that desperate.
It seems the air-brushing mind can't handle the blemishes in their own mirror.Winston without a cigar? Like FDR without his cigarette holder or specs.Oh well we get madder and madder.Jim
The keepers of the history air brush and edit just as the news media forges true history for later.
Shame, ignorance and arrogance are the biggest distorters of history.

Ugghhh! I'm going back to the woods with my camera. Civilization is not all it is cracked up to be.
I imagine Winston would tell them to B[uy]O[ne]G[et] O[ne]F[ree][F]!Great value post!
I sense forgery here. Interesting thought!
