I am only trying to protect your reputation.' He often pretended to consult me, a fellow atheist, on matters of religious protocol.{Charles H. Bennett's letter written to the family of Israeli physicist, Asher Peres}"

She had what her father had, a photographic memory. Richard Bennett, I understand, could read a play through once, and he knew the whole play, and everyone else's cues. I have the good fortune to have inherited that, and it's made many people think me more intelligent than I am."

His money obviously colored his thinking -- colored it true blue -- but he did not consider it a political drawback.

This theory is now widely accepted in the United States where it has become practically impossible for a non-millionaire to run for high office without selling pieces of himself like a prize-fighter. Yet the public still suspects a self-made millionaire like Lyndon Johnson while revering the much-richer John F. Kennedy, who got it all from his father."
