Baby boomers may remember that little ditty from the shaving cream - before the company was bought up by Philip Morris.
This teaser is a continuation in my series -
American Ingenuity (AI).
Because of formating issues, the bulk of this article is at my blog - where embedded links and videos can be displayed.
But this article in the theme of American Ingenuity will connect the dots with the following -
* The clever Burma Shave road signs - with the promise of the free trip to Mars and how one customer took them up on it and the company came good on it - back in 1955.
* The passing of astronaut Neil Armstrong August 25, 2012 and a lament of America in Decline
* The triumph of the landing of the Mars rover (August 5, 2012) - Curiosity, reviving the spirit of American Ingenuity and Exceptionalism
To continue reading about this, you may
