For my senior prom, my father finally said I could go - as long as I was home by 9 P.M.! That was around the time that most people were heading out.

I may be a senior, but so what? I'm still hot.

I had only played five games in my senior year in high school. I was not large enough. Hell, when I graduated, I was about five foot four and weighed 120 pounds. I didn't go with the Dodgers until spring training of 1940 and I weighed all of 155 pounds soaking wet.
Pee Wee Reese

Over the past years, I have lectured many times on the Cuban missile crisis, most provocatively to 200 senior officers of the former Soviet army in Moscow in 1991, among them KGB generals.
