Personal Quote:

[in 1946, about Gen. Douglas MacArthur] He got his first star in 1918 and that means he's had almost 30 years as a general--30 years of people playing to him and kissing his ass, and doing what he wants. That's not good for anyone.


Four-star American army general nicknamed "Vinegar Joe" for his sour demeanor and lack of tact (he made no secret of the fact that he detested Gen.
