Volunteering at the Getty Center gives all of us docents the opportunity to meet new people from all over the world. On a recent encounter with some lovely guests from outside the US my docent friend Dolores was asked a question.
Visitor: Was J. Paul Getty Jewish?
Dolores: No, why do you ask?
Visitor: He had a lot of money and Jewish people are always rich.
Dolores: Well, I wish someone would have told my father!
She's quick, that Dolores.
