From the June 7th Chicago Tribune by Mark Jacob.
Waukegan-born author Ray Bradbury died June 5th, but one nonaccomplishment is noteworthy: He never got a driver's license. Here are sone other nondrivers who did pretty well.
STUDS TERKEL-- Took the bus to radio job at WFMT-FM.
MAE WEST-- Drove a car only once when her father tried and failed to teach her to drive. She once said, "I did enjoy, every once in a while, buying a nice car for someone else to drive me around in." Must be nice to be rich.
WOODROW WILSON-- The 28th president didn't drive, but did enjoy riding in a car to relax.
FRANK PHILLIPS-- This one is especially surprising. The founder f Phillips Petroleum, you know, Phillips 66, made billions of dollars from car travel. He once declared "I'm a thinking machine. I don't have time to drive." As rich as he got, he could hire someone to drive him around.
