    Yes. . Not my favorite guy for sure.

    I had a friend who was in the Army stationed in Japan after the war and MacArthur walked by him in an inspection ceremony one time. He said MacArthur was wearing heavy makeup. I thought that was odd.

    @Nancy Hart
    I learned some new facts about the man while recently reading a book about the war in the Pacific. He loved the Philippines. He stood next to Emperor Hirohito for picture-taking during the signing of the Surrender. A head taller than the Emperor, he was afterward destined to essentially become "King" of Japan: everything done went through his command. He was very politically astute. He retired in the Philippines.

    Yes. ... He looks a little like Nigel Bruce, who played Dr. Watson in the 30's movies, doesn't he?
