A perplexing tale about Bob Duggan, the richest Scientologist in the world - 2014-10-15
Gentle readers, we have an unusual and, we must say, rather mystifying story to tell you today. It's about a successful businessman by the name of Robert W. Duggan. This photo of Bob, who is a robust 70 years old, is taken from his personal website, which we encourage you to visit.
Bob's website has several different pages. We learn from them that as a kid from Berkeley and San Jose, Bob was an avid sportsman. He grew up loving to surf and play tennis, and he even once ran the Palo Alto marathon in 2 hours and 49 minutes, which, if you didn't know, is seriously fast for an amateur. (We once ran a half-marathon and it took longer than that, we're pretty sure.)
Bob studied economics at UC Santa Barbara in the class of 1966, and also studied business management for a couple of years at UCLA, taking a degree from neither. But while he was at UCSB, he met the woman who would become his wife, Patricia J. Hagerty, better known as Trish. Here's the photo that Trish Duggan uses at her Twitter page.
