There are not many TV anchors/correspondents who can boast over high Q-ratings in the much coveted, yet seldom delivered Formicidae demo. For those of you who are Latin or Biology challenged (or both, like me), I am talking about ants – or more precisely one very special ant by the name of Klyde Morris – who is billed as “Aviation’s Only Ant” (now that is one claim that needs no verifying on The Google).
Klyde’s creator, Wes Oleszewski, is a man with a sharp eye for hypocrisy and absurdity – while also being a keen judge of TV talent! He also happens to be a top-notch model-rocket maker – operating under the nom-de-plume (get it?) of Dr. Zooch Rockets. You should check out his handiwork – his Saturn V is a giant in every way.
In any case, since December 3, 2008 – when management at CNN asked me if I “had a minute?” – and then gave me all the free time I could imagine, Klyde/Wes have penned three strips which mention my name. I submit them for your approval – and invite you to check out www.klydemorris.com. Thanks, Klyde, for being a fan – and I promise to go easy if I see you at a picnic. MOB
