I kid YOU NOT!

Yes, Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill KG OM CH TD PC DL FRS RA,
(30 November 1874 – 24 January 1965)
2-Term Prime Minister of Great Britain.


Yes, an Executive Order by JFK. No courts blocked that. {SMILE} Click to ENLARGE and admire. You can find it on the Web.

His mother was American and Winston was always rather proud of that.

I am not 100% sure BUT I think it was ‘honorary’ so that he would not have to pay any taxes in the U.S.! By 1963 he was quite wealthy and his royalties from his many splendid works would have been substantial. I am sure Winston would not have wanted to file a U.S. IRS 1040 each year.

I wonder if Donald Trump knows the significance of THIS day — bust or no bust.

I like the beauty of Alcatraz — but then again I never had to serve time on it.

Did the full tour of the Island in 2005. That was neat. I wish I can find the pictures from that trip.

Got to see it from multiple vantage points on our trip to California last year. What a beautiful island.

So the prison was closed 54-years ago, after 28.5 years in service.
