In 1999 When Time magazine asked readers to submit nominations for "Person of the Century" I told my ace henchman, Billy Martin "That's a no-brainer. How in Hell can anyone name someone other than Winston Churchill as THE Person of The Twentieth Century?" Being educated well read honest faithful patriotic and of sound mind and body he concurred and offered me a shot of Jack Daniels which I accepted sipped and savored. But three or four weeks later I thought well I'll still go with Winnie the Pooh but I won't take a page from the Unabomber's playbook if Time names Albert Einstein. There's a handful of possible candidates for the mantle of "Greatest Mind In Theoretical Physics Since Einstein" but the hands-down-hands-up-hands-off consensus is Stephen Hawking. And... If Jack were here he'd publish a second edition of Profiles In Courage adding a chapter on the man.
