Weird Leonards: creative, practical, and funny.

I recently read "Weird Leonards in History" [Defense AT&L, January-February 2008], and like other articles that Air Force Majors Dan Ward and Chris Quaid have published, it is great: creative and practical (and funny).

I have gotten used to the fact that Ward and Quaid indeed demonstrate a great deal of courage in the string of articles they publish in a journal that is part of the DoD establishment. I am rather amazed that the editorial leadership of the journal is courageous enough to publish this material!

One suggestion: In future writing, the majors may want to demystify intuition somewhat. For example, see my book Breaking the Code, pp. 99-100: "Klein defines intuition as the way we translate our experience into action."
