just trivia

I have not had time to either see the movie or read this book as yet... but for those who will be seeing The Good Shepherd you may be interested in the biography A Patrician of Ideas recently written by my friend Clarke Thomas about Pittsburgh's Adolph Schmidt. Mckeesport native Schmidt had a few similarities to the movie's Edward Wilson in that he spent WWII as an OSS agent in Europe. He would return to Pittsburgh and have an interesting public-private career here and eventually wind up as the US Ambassador to Canada.
