Just remembered the name of thew rock concert empresario/hawker ,Bill Graham ( don't know his original family name )
BTW: Bob Denver's original family name was the rather Tuetonic "Deutchendorfer".
For better of for worse they gave us J.RoberOppenheimer and Edward Teller( creator of the Hyfrogen Bomb AND Reagan's "Star Wars" space-based weaponry dream ) ; step-fathers of the age of Weapons of Mass Destruction....oh and Ethel & Julius Rosenburg.
Oh ,and lest we forget Henry Kissinger.....
and MSFT's Steve Ballmer. ( co-monopolist judged "illegal" then got off by Bush DoJ )
Speaking of over-acheivers, new candidates go to Tufts graduate Andy Fastow, recently indicted for masterminding the complex shell game corporations that are at the heart of the collapse of the infrastructure of the now infamous Enron.
Atleast when Micheal Milken was caught the only ones who lost their livelihood were the Yuppies ay collapsed Drexel Burnham
Seeing as how no one group is "immune" from the full range of human nature and you want to take pride in one's "bright shining" over-acheivers you've got to own up to what happens when the dark side holds sway to those talents as well.
A lot of innocent people are still greatly affected by the abuse of power weilded by the above mentioned .
Just speaking as a New Yawker calling 'em as I've seen 'em. ;-)
