A Moment of Silence

Wherever you are in the world, please pause as you read this, for a moment of silence in memory of the late Walter Frederick Morrison.  Mr. Morrison invented the frisbee in the 1950's, and we have never been the same.

Countless high school and university students around the world have enjoyed hours of recreational (and often competitive) hours of bliss from a simple game of toss, frisbee golf, and ultimate.  Not to mention the rounds of fetch between man and his best friend in the park.

Mr. Morrison's contribution to modern civilization can be likened to that of the Beatles, The Joy of Cooking, and the Boeing 747.

Thank you, Mr. Morrison.  From all of us.
