"He can recite Shakespeare from memory - he wrapped up his birthday remarks with a flawless rendition of the ‘band of brothers’ soliloquy from Henry V - and lectures at U.S.C. in disciplines as varied as architecture, medicine and law. ‘I’m a smash in the school of gerontology,’ he likes to say. Once, Michael Kahn, the artistic director of the Shakespeare Theater Company, asked Mr. Harman to tell his life story on videotape. It took five hours."

~ NYT on Newsweek’s new owner Sidney Harman. Frankly, anyone that can recite the St. Crispin’s Day speech (please note that it is not, in fact, a ‘soliloquy’), especially at age 92, has my vote of confidence.
