John1921, RE: "Mature judgment was probably a net minus, etc., etc." I'm not sure mature judgement always comes with age. We have many examples of the opposite. Take Teddy Kennedy driving his Oldsmobile off a bridge, or John Edwards knocking up his mistress. Where was the "mature judgement" in those cases?

A couple of years ago, I got involved with the National World War Two Museum in New Orleans. Like any endeavor someone chooses to make time for, I did it for a variety of reasons. As I have waded deeper into the museum, I learn more and more. Whether you like it or not, World War Two has cast an indelible shadow onto your life. The war ended in 1945. But the effects of the war are still with us.

The generation that fought the war is leaving us through attrition. They are all in their eighties and nineties...
