    The greatest thing to happen in 1960 was ME!!! Oh, and that royal was born too, Prince whatsisname? And some bloke called Cassius Clay managed to win gold at the Rome Olympics. His style reminded me a lot of Mohammed Ali, not that I was there. By the way, did I mention that I was born that year. What more could you ask for?
