Some of the classes that he's been known to teach include
He's a very friendly person, who's always willing to grant a term paper extension should one be needed.
He has lots of great stories to tell: the one about the tiger pit in Guatemala, about when he didn't go to Disneyland with Nikita Khrushchev, how he nearly got on Nixon's bad side because of modern art, the various times he was almost shot... just to start. Make sure to take a class from him at some point!
