may you hover on in all our minds Walter

Steve McQueen dead? didnt we lose hime back in 1980, ...oh Alexander McQueen is dead whos he? and why does every female i know seem to be walking round in tears, lets find out - oh i see! he invented the cult fashion classic the 'hipster trouser', ..but hold on he died at 40, ive either got my maths wrong here, or he was some sort of incredibly talented embryo as i thought the hipster trouser was a product of the 60s, hhmmmm...

No doubt his untimely death will overshadow this weeks loss of a true product design master! - Walter Frederick Morrison, the inventor of the hovering aerodynamic plastic disc back n the 1950s, otherwise known as the Frisbee, who died at his home in Utah aged 90.
