Fed Chair's Space Lawyer Pal
Like this. In a profile of the new chairman of the Federal Reserve, Ben S. Bernanke, Bloomberg.com makes mention of the fact that Bernanke was childhood friend and best man at the wedding of Houston space lawyer Nathan Goldman.
Goldman, who we also know as author of Space Commerce: Free Enterprise on the High Frontier, among other writings, has good things to say about his powerful pal. And according to the story, "Bernanke and his friend Goldman played sports and spent hours poring over a baseball-statistics game they developed."
With friends like Nathan, Ben's off to a stellar start.
(The article does not note whether former fed chair Alan Greenspan also hung out with space lawyers.)
