Henry Molaison was a mild-mannered American who became the most famous amnesiac in the world. Having suffered fits in childhood, he underwent experimental brain surgery in 1953.

Business Diary: Fund manager has identity crisis

As the boss of the world's largest bond fund, Pimco, one would expect Bill Gross to be a signed up member of the capitalist elite and a defender of the status quo.
