6. tom seaver
8. "against life"
sinatra did always carry a roll of dimes, but it grew out of the kidnapping of his son, frank
jr., in 1963.
the kidnappers told him to call only from pay phones-and during one of those calls he
ran out of coins. he vowed never to be without dimes again.
he ended up paying the $250,000 ransom. the kidnappers were eventually caught, and
frank never stopped carrying that roll of dimes.

“Bad men need nothing more to accomplish their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing.”
