I heard a slighly different version of that Kissinger story. Walter supposedly said "that's because Henry only listens to himself."

Listening to Leonard and his brother at the same time, I am reminded of Henry Kissinger's brother, Walter. There was just a year's difference between them in age, but when asked why Henry spoke with such a strong German accent, when he didn't, Walter answered "I had more friends."
