Gentlemen and Scholars

I recently tweeted to someone that they were a gentleman and a scholar.  I really meant that to show appreciation to the person for the good works they do. That got me thinking to do a post on other people who I feel are gentlemen [or gentle women] and scholars.

What do I mean by being a gentle person and a scholar?  By a gentleman, I mean a man or a woman who is basically a nice person and who exhibits that niceness in their mien.  They are people who for the most part, tend to look at the positive and try to find the goodness in people, and they show respect to others, even [and maybe especially] to those who views disagree with their own

What do I mean about being a scholar.  Basically a knowledgeable person, especially knowledgeable about the area in which they are involved with.  I don't mean they have to be a genius, just an overall learned person that shows common sense.

I try myself to be a gentleman in my tweets and things I say.  As far as being a scholar....well, one out of two isn't bad. 

So, I would like to recognize a few people, men and women, who I would call being a gentleman/woman and a scholar.  In naming these people I mean no disrespect to those people I overlook-as I know there will be dozens of them. Hey, I'm old!  :-)   So, for all those people I know I have overlooked, I sincerely apologize. 

One other thing, in naming this list, it is my list of people who I feel are gentlemen [women] and scholars.  If you disagree, that is your privilege. Just my list!

Without further ado, here are some people I would call gentlemen/ladies and scholars [in no particular order]:
