    I’ll have to give this some serious thought. I mean, I’m trained to be a university professor & that’s what I’ve been doing all these years without wings. I don’t think there’s much call for flying professors. But maybe I could fly into otherwise inaccessible places where teaching is needed. Professors Without Borders? I’ll get back to you…
