confused.  Had no clue who Shirley Temple was.  I said she was a child movie star and that she grew
up to be an ambassador under Reagan.  Do you know who Reagan was?  "I've heard of him", said the
dealer.

Interesting. She was, apparently, no dummy.:

'Temple got her start in foreign service after her failed run for Congress in 1967 when Henry
Kissinger overheard her talking about South West Africa at a party. He was surprised that she knew
anything about it.[86] She was appointed as a delegate to the 24th United Nations General Assembly
(September – December 1969) by President Richard M. Nixon[87][88][89] and United States Ambassador
to Ghana (December 6, 1974 – July 13, 1976) by President Gerald R. Ford.'
