The Great American Reseach & Development Factory

Right now, across the fifty states, unknown numbers of Americans are quietly, personally, pursuing their happiness by seeking solutions to problems. Each explores the unknown on his/her own – because they want to. It is the classic American incubator:

The humble garage

In its confines Americans have tinkered, thought, built, and other wise created things great and small. It’s the most formidable research and development engine on the planet. The ingenuity of the individual, pursing happiness, enriches everyone – another instance of the rising tide lifting all boats. This creativity and drive, coupled with the convenient workspace of the garage (spare room, porch – whatever) has always produced, and will always produce, the ideas, products, and services to propel the 21st century.

Laissez le bon temps roulez.
Of course, there will always be those folks who won't participate.
