By way of the Star Tribune today, we learned of the death earlier this month of David Leslie, 84, a Twin Cities stockbroker who was probably better known for his love and knowledge of birds.
He also invented this contraption: The Hummer Helmet. Watch the video.
He also held a patent on the device.
It was a good life.
