Westword's "Off Limits" page this week notices that Wart wrote the foreword to the comic book 500 Years of Resistance, about--well, I'm sure you can figure it out. Churchill, careful scholar that he is, says he received the invitation to write the foreword "with a considerable degree of skepticism," but overcame it after he found the book to be, shockingly, "a revelation."
Enough of a revelation that the foreword, according to Westword, is 13 pages long. One assumes that doesn't include footnotes. The Wart-lavin' Westword (Michael Roberts?) is unusually snarky (tho still very mild) in this little tidbit.
Small stuff: Your darling D-blog (not to mention the Pirate with the Parrot from Petticoat Junction) had this story almost three months ago--though not any quotes from the foreword, since the book just came out.
Second, why do I keep seeing assertions like this: "In 2009, a judge found that Churchill had been wrongfully fired; he was awarded $1 in damages . . . "
A judge? Naves found that Wart was wrongfully fired? I don't think so.
JWP has a bigger hunk from the piece (and had it first, the spalpeen).
