Well, Kathryn, I must say that I, for one, am looking at Bertrand Russell with strange new respect:
“He had affairs with a long line of women, a few of whom he later married. They included a young secretary, an MP’s wife, the daughter of a Chicago surgeon, a researcher, an actress, a suffragette, several teachers, the wife of a Cambridge lecturer and his children’s governess.”
He also lived to be nearly 100. Draw your own conclusions.
