    His family and would-be-wife were killed in the holocaust.



    All of these guys wrote, and one day I'd like to be half as good as any of them. I have a long standing crush on Louise Bryant. Also, Scott and Franz were young looking men just like me! Yippie!

    add a vote for Bukowski from me (i also tried getting into Kafka but i just couldnt manage to get myself to read his stuff for some reason)

    but my real hero (and in my opinion - the greatest person to have ever lived):

    Rupert Murdoch

    Yeah he died young. Thirty something. His family and girlfriend were alive during WW2.

    I do like the pinstripe suit. And he is a good businessman.

    Is that supposed to be facetious? :blink:

    I'm not sure what I can say in the coffee house w/out getting myself into hot water, but Rupert Murdoch as 'hero' just flat-out does not compute. Hell, this emoticon works so well in a Murdoch as hero motif I'll hit it again... :blink:

    why would you think im being facetious?

    Rupert Murdoch is one of the most ambitious, successful, and dedicated businessman ever and a true pioneer of global media and information.

    i realize people loathe him for a variety of different reasons but i dont think anybody will deny how successful he has been and i think most would love be as prosperous.

    this is just a very small part of why he is my hero.
