RIP General Chuck Yeager...

You look in the dictionary under “The Right Stuff,” you see his picture.

A few years back, I was listening to Michael Berry, a Houston talk host, discussing a case he was on when he was a baby lawyer. The firm needed an aircraft expert, and they hired Yeager. During voir dire, the lead attorney asked, “General Yeager, can you list to the jury all the aircraft you can be classified as an expert on, and why?” It took an hour.

From The Right Stuff, General Yeager made his movie debut, a cameo as a bartender. Perfect!
RIP Sir. Too many records set and broken, too many NASA officials terrified by your many acts. You outlived them all. And I have no doubt St Peter just dodged your entering the Pearly Gates!
