Just an interesting article

I think most of us can't navigate the Web, newpapers, magazine or television news these days without tripping over an "inspirational" human-interest story. Heaven knows that sports broadcasts can't seem to live without 'em anymore. But I find that this article is less inspirational than it is just plain admirable. People generally can't keep up with a hobby for more than a few years; this guy has spent almost his whole life in pursuit of one dream that he believes is attainable, while the world at large disagrees, and he hasn't lost his focus.

I do wonder how a guy who has been almost single-mindedly pursuing something like this, as well as all the sideline ventures it spawned, managed to find three different women to marry him or the time to pursue them, too!
