Thrill Last Week
I have met a lot of celebrities...mostly Nobel laureates...
Hans Bethe, Jim Cronin, Sam Ting, Burt Richter, Art Schallow, Bob Hofstadter, Martin Perl, Steve Chu, Horst Stormer, Carlo Rubbia.
Last week I ran into Rep. Henry Waxman outside the Rayburn Office Bldg on Capitol Hill. I walked toward him and shook his hand and expressed what an honor and a pleasure it was to meet him. His initial reaction was one like a deer in the headlights...I guess when a stranger walks to you purposefully you are never quite sure whatthey might be up to.
