William G. McAdoo Quote

“It is impossible to defeat an ignorant man in argument.” –William G. McAdoo

Which quote reminds me of a story I heard back in the 60s:

Juan and Ahmal

A woman has twins and gives them up for adoption. One of them goes to a family in Egypt and is named “Ahmal.”   The other goes to a family in Spain; they name him “Juan.”   Years later, Juan sends a picture of himself to his birth mother. Upon receiving the picture, she tells her husband that she wishes she also had a picture of Ahmal.  Her husband responds, “They’re twins!  If you’ve seen Juan, you’ve seen Ahmal.”
