Winston Churchill Was A Great Statesman But Apparently A Bad Customer

LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Linda Wertheimer. So, Winston Churchill, a great statesman but apparently a credit risk, the archives of London tailor Henry Poole and Company reveal Churchill racked up an $18,000 tab. He was so offended to get a bill that, says Poole's, he never forgave us. His last order repairs to a yachting cap. Don't think they're going to get paid, that ship has sailed. It's MORNING EDITION.
