Mike Lord just posted an article on Dr. Openheimer in Facebook. I want to relate an experience in re this scientist: In the late 1940's I was working the cash register in my father's restaurant. Dr. Openheimer had just finished a meal there and came to pay his bill. He gave me a $5 bill and I was so excited that I gave him change for a $10 bill.
