Victor Davis Hanson
I don't have interns. I don't have a manager. I don't have assistants. I don't have a secretary. I can't figure out Outlook Express. I'm the worst person in the world answering e-mails, and my phone is probably the oldest, most battered phone you can find. So I just talk to people.
I came to America at the age of 17 as an exchange student, and a year later, I was a student at Dartmouth.
