Churchill's Cigar - WTF?

This is really sad. Separating Churchill from his ever present cigar would be like separating him from his beloved whiskey. Just how weak minded does one have to get; when the legal vises of a unique individual becomes too harsh a reality to bear?
If you do a little bit of digging, you'll find the editing/cropping of photographs at the Dailymail online is done by interns. Care to guess the last name of the one responsible..?
I've been to that museum - it was a pretty cool exhibit.

As far as the cigar, are we really that surprised? :rolleyes:
Wow, if they're up in arms about his cigar, I wonder what they think about his comments on Islam:

Civilisation is confronted with militant Mahommedanism. The forces of progress clash with those of reaction. The religion of blood and war is face to face with that of peace. Luckily the religion of peace is usually the better armed.

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property - either as a child, a wife, or a concubine - must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.
