    Only teenagers have original thoughts. Just ask them, they'll tell you.

    I used to "invent" in my mind...I suppose I still do...even some of the most "out there" inventions I came up with have been thought of by other people...The last time this happened was just last week...at the age of 12 I came up with a power generator that was effectively a small or mini sun...the panels surrounding it not only held the heat and energy in but harvested the solar energy at a rate of almost 100%, I knew even then that the technology needed was beyond what we had at the time...and then I see a project for fusion engines last week that look almost identical to what I drew up more than 30 years ago...And was being described as a "mini sun"
    Reminds me of the false statement that "anything is possible"...no, its not...instead "anything that is possible has or will happen."

    tired of looking for the thread.
    ...my simple opinion:
    was looking up the doors stuff.
    have read a couple lame bios where jims dad was in the navy, but his significance evaded this poster.

    jims father was an admiral who was on duty when there was an attack on the USS Liberty.
    morrison dispatched US fighters to defend the Liberty, but was countermanded by...john mcaine.
    id hope for some clarity regarding.
    did jm2 stop morrison from defending the Liberty?
    *oops. thought there was a wiki link i provided.
    paraphrasing- " morrison dispatched fighters which were countermanded by european commander mccain."
    ...my goal was looking up doors content, spilled over into his dad and the Liberty attack.
    forgive me. just parroting what id read.

    also reading morrison was very involved with the 'nam war.
    jim jr wrote a song about killing his father and ....... his mother.
    jim probably had a good connection for acid.
    stumbled upon some interesting stuff about frank zappa as well.

    RAdm George S Morrison was promoted to that rank on 1 July 1967 (the attack on USS Liberty was the month before in June 1967) and he was assigned, while still a Captain and awaiting his promotion date, as Assistant Commander for Logistics and Fleet Support at NavAirSysCom in Washington DC. He had nothing to do with 6th Fleet operations at that time. His next assignment, in July 1968, was ComCarDiv9/ComTF77, aboard USS Hancock,a 7th (Pacific) Fleet assignment no where near the Mediterranean Sea, in fact TF77 spent a lot of time operating off Korea. This was followed by assignment as Director, Electronic Warfare and Tactical Command System Division OpNav in September 1969 . . . also no where near the Mediterranean Sea or the 6th Fleet.

    Rock and roll is fun, but necessarily truthful.
