Q: How would you characterize your admiration of Powell, your feelings about Powell -
you've got sort of mixed feelings.
MG: I have mixed feelings about Powell because, while I admire his tenacity
and his ambition, and the ability to see his dreams to fruition,
in a way that most people don't do in their career, even some of our mythical heroes didn't
really do as well as Powell did, he generally did it over the bodies of those
who helped him. In other words, the crews he had and the people who worked for him, with
him, generally were used in a sort of dispassionate way. In other words, your spare
character's on my stage. And, to some degree I think that will ultimately count in
a man's life, to what degree his comrades are given credit for the success. And,
with Powell, few to none, were given credit for their success.
