I second Bogey and Einstein... although the latter appears to have been the worst sailor ever...

No no no......that would make him a pirate, and pirates are cute, you know. They have cool flags you can buy from Disney.

I notice nobody has mentioned the Kennedys or Cronkite.

Wouldn't that make him an Australian hero?

Haven't heard about the murder and slave running but he certainly was a scoundrel of the first order. Never convicted but charged and probably guilty of statutory rape. Also for some time had a strong fondness for certain banned substances.
