Richard P. Feynman to Sandra Chester, date unknownFor fellow Feynmanphiles:
I was delighted too when I heard about the Nobel Prize, thinking as you did that my bongo playing was at last recognized. Imagine my chagrin when I realized that there had been some mistake - they cited some marks I made on paper some 15 years ago - and not one word about percussion technique.
I know you share in my disappointment.
