This will be my very shortest dispatch, since here I only want to urge everyone to read about the fantastic life of the physicist, Rainer Weiss, in a masterful account by Adrian Cho (see: “The Storyteller” in August 5, 2016 Science 353:532-537)! No understanding of physics is needed! Just read and enjoy it!
What a life! What a wild fellow! After flunking out of college, he used his creativity to survive and become a celebrated researcher! What a creative tinkerer and experimenter! Very unconventional! Awesome! What a distinctive individual! Yes, scientists are people!
