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.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
