Heh- I can attest to that, I met him once in '98 at a space conference,
and I have no idea what he looks like. I was so high on success- I was
carrying a new engine that we'd fired just the day before- that I
wouldn't have recalled meeting the Pope, though :) [Walt was the big
angel investor in Rotary Rocket Company.]

We might hit him up for some investment, after we have a longer track
