A Touch of Richard Feynman

Richard Feynman is one of my heros. I have quite a few of them, but they all share one major property: They are clear thinkers in some capacity. They are not saints or even necessarily noble people, but they are always people who in some capacity think particularly clearly. Richard Feynman is a particularly interesting person whose thinking in the realm of Physics is essentially paradigmatic. He is the Physicist's Physicist. My generation of Physicists grew up knowing we wanted to be like Feynman, as clear, as essentially thoughtful, and hopefully as creative.
