    Interesting history. Of course, everyone wonders what his last words were.

    RIP Mr. Patterson. What a huge contribution to the WW2 war effort he made, and the movie about him was fascinating.
    Political correctness is a liberal degrading of the freedom of speech. George Orwell's 1984 famously incorporated the notion of limiting thought through language (see Newspeak)." Meanwhile, the beatings will continue until morale improves around here.
