Fascinating. Thank you. I had heard about him and his device from an inventor I have worked with but did not have the privilege of seeing the actual device.

I believe that it is a rare person in command who has the ability to recognize a good idea coming from persons of far lower rank and then seeing that the idea is brought to fruition.

I had the great privilege of working with one who did and it was the sidewinder, one of the greatest in-house developments of a game-changing idea ever. We have such ideas surfacing still. What is lacking is the gift of those in command to recognize the better, breakthrough ideas. Instead we have the likes of the One and Chu pushing the Solyndras of the world and the bullet trains to bannkruptcy, as Governor Palin has accurately termed them, a sure path to defeat in the present situation.

Do you mean the AIM 9-X Sidewinder missile?
