The Sky's The Limit
--------
Speaking of skies, did you catch Felix Baumgartner's record-setting supersonic skydive the other day? Joe Kittinger, seen here with Felix, was the previous record-holder in this rarified event, managing "only" 614 mph versus Herr Baumgartner's 833. Joe, by the way, happens to be a distant cousin of mine. Feisty old fellow. He said he had a "special one-fingered salute" for those who thought Felix would implode upon reaching Mach 1.
