Henry J Kaiser and I were old buddies. He had a little parcel of hunting
land in Canada. He and RoberT B Colgate (CEO of Colgate-Palmolive-Peet) yusta get away from their wives, their troubles and cares, and go Moose hunting on 450 acres north of the border. Then one day uranium was discovered on an adjacent piece and the engineers said the vein extended into the Kaiser/Colgate property.
They got the bad news by phone as I sat in Colgate's office with them.
I was there on business -- they were there to BS.
The two moose hunters were very upset, their happy hunting grounds
was about to be desecrated. It would become an Uranium mine. Robert B turned to me and said, and I quote "Well Kennedy, it looks like the rich get richer doesn't it". And I stayed poor and they got richer. And thats the way it was heading west back in the "good old days". .
Tune in next week for another story from the annuls of the Ancient Mariner. Till Then, have a Merry Christmas and to all a good night.
