David Marcus: The most interesting dyslexic con man I ever met
David Marcus was a professional con man who taught me how a business could be started with nothing but a spiel (and a business card and a phone). He was never malicious, remaining aware of who deserved to be conned out of their money and who did not. He thought that taking chemicals for free, from people who had no use for them, was a con, not a business. After we started our business, and after we split up, I watched him from afar, conning a succession of blowhards out of their investment money.
