This is my “baby brother”. He is the most modest person I have ever known considering all of his wonderful accomplishments.
Thanks for the article...well done. His memoir is being written and the chapter describing the Getty ordeal is the best one that I have read. If you can prevail upon Burt to let you read it, you would be very entertained. It is certainly possible that some things in the chapter need to be kept within its confines...

Dr. Burt Brent is an old, old friend whose great artistic talents were revealed early in his life. I recognized his talents as revealed when he was the artistic director for the Keidan Shkootzer, a very local humor magazine.

Burt, thank you for all the good things you do in this life.

Kudos to recognizing this gifted humorous lad. I am proud of him and learned to appreciate nature and animal conservation from such a guardian of our environment and teacher of the sciences. Thank you Burt for your years of hard work helping children of need in such a compassionate manner. I am glad you have been recognized and I'm sure you will be in the future again and again for your talents. Kudos!

Dr. Brent did a full ear reconstruction on me about 25 years ago. It was an incredibly difficult one due to the nature of the initial injury sustained in a car accident. While complications caused us to have to remove the outer rim of the ear, it's still a night and day difference than the nearly nothing that had been there. He was always an amazing guy to talk to, and I'm very glad to see that he's still doing well!
