Fact that you slogged through an 800+ bio of anyone makes you, Sir, a loser.

I don't have great memory so bear with me. When the Harrimans, the Rockefellers (i think) and some of Bush's relatives were forming a financial institution (Chase perhaps), JP told another person they would be the only two White people left on Wall Street.

Favorite leader: Baron von Ungern-Sternberg

Sir Winston Churchill. Certainly a bit of an obvious choice but the more I read and thus discover about Churchill the more I admire the man.
