It's been a busy but productive few days on my end, but the word of the week for me had to be Gyrocopter. A 61 year-old mail carrier from Florida was willing to risk his life--risk being shot down--in order to fly his homemade aircraft into the "protected" air space of the legislative branch and bring attention to his cause. Let's just say he made such a statement, a few of my colleagues and I wanted a test drive of our own. To the Secret Service: Please don't come after us. We're just envisioning a carefree solo trip to work and back. Looking beyond the espionage factor, I really appreciated the commitment and dedication of this character. It's very motivational as I am currently in writing and development mode on a new project. It's a lonely existence. But the hope as always is that something phenomenal comes out of self-imposed seclusion from friends, family and fancy dates. We'll see.
