In reply to: 92 's message, "Paul Volcker, head of the Fed under Carter and Reagan" on Monday, December 09, 06:27:54am

He was such a fishing nut that he couldn't be pried away from his cottage on the Rideau Lakes between Ottawa and the Thousand Islands which is why he was not featured on the speakers circuit or as a talking head (until he accepted Obama's re-call to service in the wake of the 2008 financial collapse)

So low key and modest that the people in line with him for bait at the village store had no idea who he was.
