Quote
Hubert Schlafly, an Emmy Award-winning engineer who helped shape modern television by inventing the teleprompter and executing the first satellite transmission of a cable program, died Wednesday.
 
Schlafly, a longtime Greenwich resident who in recent years moved to the Edgehill retirement community in Stamford, was 91.


Interesting article about him.

 ::rimshot::
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

- Thomas Jefferson
