Who knew America’s war-time generals were this prodigious. While conducting with one hand the longest war in American history, they use the other (so to speak) to bed biographers, party-plan with socialites and get involved in child-custody battles for non-military personnel. What’s next? Launching a new cologne line with Brad Pitt (Eau de Humanity)?
