I would say that comment seems to have a ring of falsehood. Just
the opposite in fact, for when one accumulates money, one's personality
begins to emerge.
Perhaps Vidal's comment can be understood in terms of the fact that
as people accumulate money they also accumulate years and wisdom,
and so are less likely to do exciting risky activities. spike
