i figured you'd be there! too bad we didn't meet up; would have loved to compare notes on-site.

I agree about the ghastly libretto, but Teller isn't actually a government guy - he's a civilian physicist, like many others on the Manhattan project a Jewish refugee. I'm curious to read the text - it seemed to me that a lot of Teller's lines weren't really consistent with his character and I wondered if Sellars had reassigned some quotes.

The first kid does not count as 'marital relations' as Kitty was married indeed, but not to Oppenheimer at the time...
