True story? Funny anyway.

It is said that Bob Toombs, 
that good ole unreconstructed
 Rebel, former general and
 politician, was giving a talk 
when word came in
 of the Chicago fire of Oct. 8-10, 1872. 
Someone apparently came to the lecturn 
and told him, or handed
 him a note, that the great fire in Chicago 
was finally being brought under control and
 that the city still might be saved.
“But, he added, “the wind is in our favor.”

  Historians of repute have heard this. Trying to prove
 But it’s funny anyway.
