My! How times have changed?

Military Expertise


"It appears we have appointed our worst generals to command forces,and our most gifted and brilliant to edit newspapers! In fact, I discovered by reading newspapers that these editor "geniuses" plainly saw all my strategic defects from the start, yet failed to inform me until it was too late.Accordingly, I'm readily willing to yield my command to these obviouslysuperior intellects, and I'll, in turn, do my best for the Cause bywriting editorials - after the fact."
