The Mad Professor
I visited one of my father’s classes on Wednesday night, one that included the successful launch of three rockets into the ceiling. All fire and smoke detection equipment had to be sealed off with rubber gloves by armed security officers at the university. No student was harmed in the making of those photographs, though not for lack of trying. Days later… I have just now completed the six hour drive here to Toledo, Ohio, for a conference he’s speaking at tomorrow. I’m no more than chauffeur to a weary legend.
