Why “Owl Works”?

An admiration for Kelly Johnson and all he accomplished at the Lockheed “Skunk Works” combined with a psycho-Newtonian reaction to an informal lecture series on conspiracies by the good fellow down the hall from my lair.  The first I attribute to a father who once worked as a flight control engineer at the home of the P-51 Mustang, North American Aviation; the later to an ornery spirit inherited from a long line of tree climbers and rock throwers, which spawned a rather tempestuous relationship with rules, regulations, conventional wisdom and “The Establishment” (who or what ever it might be at the moment).  Thanks to my father, I possess an FAA Certified Flight Instructor Certificate.  Physical, emotional and psychological scars attest to the orneriness.

As the desk drawer full of unswallowed methylphenidate screams, this probably ain’t the best place to come looking for a laser-like focus.  Really no telling what will show up in this notebook.  And a heads up for anyone with an OCD about the time-space continuum:  it’s probably going to be a Billy Pilgrim kind of journey.  I’m just hoping for a more peaceful ending.

So it goes . . .

    I hope you don’t mind me saying it; I’m glad to hear you’re not swallowing those pills! Maybe it’s just me, but I think there’s a more or less concerted effort to smother creativity in the West with drugs like that.

      Thanks Josh. I think we’re a lot closer to THX1138 than anyone realizes.

      I’m just glad that when I was a boy, boys could be boys.
