Hope your yesterday was non-violent.

And remember there is a good move with Ben Kingsley from 1982 that is worth watching again.

More about the movie is here:

Has Candice Bergen (Murphy Brown) as well.

It seems that well-remembered men of historical importance often born into families of means.
I’ve been reading a book about the top 100 scientists in history, with short biographies of the top 100 scientists as ranked by the authors.

None so far into the book as I’ve read have been born into poverty.
Not a surprise.
