Personal Quote:

[observation, 2016] Once the human race figured out how to dig uranium from the earth and make a projectile from it, it's really the end of war. In most of my lifetime, the two powers that could do it refrained from doing doing it because it was sheer folly ending in suicidal absurdity.

Trivia:

Had three sons. The eldest, Abraham Isaac Wouk, died in 1951, shortly before his fifth birthday. See more »
