The following exchange happened on my Facebook page in response my writing, “If you think you’re doing something, you’ll never be happy. If you don’t do something, you’ll never be happy.”
Mike Himelstein Did you write that? You are a genius and I’m not kidding.

Jerry Katz Mike, I wouldn’t say I’m a genius, but thanks.

Mike Himelstein You don’t have to SAY you’re a genius, because you ARE a genius.

Jerry Katz I’m not. No way. I’m just doing my thing, okay? But, again, thank you for your thoughts.

Mike Himelstein Your “thing” is being a genius. Everybody knows it. You are a humble person and that is to be respected. But you are truly one of the world’s greatest geniuses. I know that word is tossed around a little too easily these days, but you are certainly one.

Jerry Katz Dear Mike, There is absolutely no way that is true, I am absolutely and unequivocally NOT one of the great geniuses in the world today. It is NOT true. I am NOT what you say. However, again, thanks just for being here. Take care. -Jerry Katz

Mike Himelstein All right look. There was Socrates, there was Plato, there was Aristotle (Alav Shalom) There was Newton, there was Einstein, there was Elvis. And now there is Jerry Katz. I think you are a greater genius than all of those bastards. And I’m not kidding.
