The Times continues an ugly misquote

"When a woman once told Winston Churchill he was drunk, he is said to have replied: “And you, madam, are ugly. But I shall be sober tomorrow, whereas you will still be ugly.”

So the Times says (and I've seen this attribution before), but I've seen the movie (and it's an old movie) in which W.C. Fields says, "...But I'll be sober in the morning and you'll be ugly the rest of your life."

This is just why I have a blog. The Times makes it too hard to respond to most articles and it's so frustrating. But now I can express myself whether they like it or not! Thank you, blogspot!
