Winston Gets a Lasting Memorial

A new permanent exhibition honoring the life of Winston Churchill is opening in London, according to the Wall Street Journal. Churchill is my greatest political hero and was rightly voted the Greatest Briton of All Time in 2002 by the British public. In my mind, he should have been Time Magazine's Man of the Century in late 1999. What other statesman had so great an influence on the century (an impact, I might add, that remains today: Israel, Iraq, the United Nations, the armored tank are all among his legacy).

Next step: open a similar exhibition for Ronald Reagan.
