mrs edmo worked for Gore medical products in the early 90s. They employed a lot of smart PhD types, paid well, and people became wealthy based on stock bonuses. Wish she had hung on but her boss was intolerable. mrs edmo was just one in a long line of competent people run off by said boss.

They made a lot of neat stuff like tendons. And dental floss.

It's his funeral and I'll cry if I want to. You would cry too if it happened to you.

Still no justice in the garment world for his partner...thank goodness he had his art major to save him.

If I could erase one Gore for history, it would be the one actively hated the first amendment, not the one that passively defended the first one. Now, if I could erase TWO Gores from history......

I still have a 40 year old Goretex backpack that sheds water like a champ. I may be buried with that thing if my kids don't borrow/swipe it.

I'm trying to figure out if the rain is ironic or not.

Got a pic? I've never seen a Gore Tex pack.

A good Gore Tex jacket has saved my life a handful of times.  I keep an old one in my first aid kit. 
Thanks RW Gore.
