I have heard of many folks using the term “Skunk Works.” I think it all originated in Al Capp’s comic strip, “Lil Abner,’ way back in the 40s. I fondly remember it. I loved Joe Brstsk, the little guy that wandered around with a continuing little black rain cloud over his head. That’s me.

Shortly after I posted the "Open Letter", I got a private email from someone who shall remain nameless, sort of chastising me for using the name "Skunk Works" for our company since it's a registered trademark of the Lockheed Martin company dating back to the days of the U2, SR-71 and other fantastic aircraft of the day (probably some under development today as well).
