Frank and Ernest

Published 2013-06-09 (Image 98572)

The phrase "pushing the envelop" came into common usage after Tom Wolfe used it in his book "The Right Stuff."  We was describing test pilots with exceptional courage who were expanding the limits of flight.  Ernie wants to become a test pilot and people ask me if he has the right stuff.  Unfortunately, his level of courage can best be described by saying ... Ernie is unable to push the envelope because hes terrified of getting a paper-cut!
