There is a main topic area dedicated to Gordon Baxter's 80th birthday. I would like to see a main topic area dedicated to Len Morgan, who passed away on March 11th (see June Flying). How does one get this done? Len and Bax were probablythe 2 most incisive and entertaining columnists ever to grace the pages of Flying.
I absolutely agree. I grew up with Flying, and while I've always enjoyed the many different topics and articles, I always cherished Vectors and Bax Seat. I have missed both writers deeply since they stopped their columns.
I read about Morgan's passing while waiting for a photo CD of a fight card at La Villita to get done right. Simply put as a writer he has been inspirational. "A Derlict Hulk is Worth a Thousand Words" showed what a good essay could do emotionally. Writing is like flying you can get inspired by a master. There are times where you work on the craft of writing like flying. A well written essay is like a well executed manuver in an airplane. Working on my site the goal is to handle a column like Bax or Morgan did. Like a student pilot wowed by a master I some of my writing I want to be like Bax ans Morgan.
God speed Bax and Morgan...thanks you have inspired this ex pilot now boxer and boxing writer.
Take extra care to avoid activities that might detract from flying.
