Father's Day A Month Late
It's the brown bag that was my dad's lunch transport system each and every day, and brought home to be used again, folded nicely.
General Electric was the mother ship: a home to working-class geniuses, their tales of brilliance shared by my dad as with an honest reverence to balance my enthusiasm of a Reggie Jackson home run streak.
This is the guy who would come home from work and say " I love my job. I get to work with the greatest minds of our time". Whether it was true or not, it didn't matter. The message was clear : get yourself in a position to do what you want to do, and appreciate the others who want that too.
Happy Father's Day Jim Archibald!
