Subject: [ARIZARD-L] We have nothing to fear . . .

You may be right, Bob, but being a member of the British Empire, I had always
attributed that quote to Winston Churchill, in one of his speeches to rally the
citizens during the War. However history was one of my worst subjects, so my
opinion doesn't mean much. But it does show what a little partiality will do.
I tried to do a search on "dogpile" and got so many hits that it was
unbeleivable. Seems many people have (re)quoted this saying.
