OT: Velcro inventor................arrrrrrgggggggghhhh!!!!!!

I"m so bereft:

I read an article years ago in a Sunday supplement that said that Stanley

Reading the post by Claude Voit, I now discover that the reporter was 

Do to this terrible, terrible discovery  I realize I may not be able to 
claim to be the

There I said it and feel a little better.
