Also called a TrailBlazer! I have the pleasure of chatting with one of these "Thinking Outside The Box Artists" tonight Author Romance Author Ruth Clampett.

A graduate of Art Center College of Design, her careers have included graphic design, photography, VP of Design for WB Stores and teaching photography at UCLA.

Take 1,000 aviation historians/enthusiasts and ask them to list 10 favorite airplanes, and there is a 100% chance that on everyone's list will be one or more of the famous Lockheed "Blackbird" family of aircraft. Beautiful, sleek, clandestine, extremely fast, and even sexy to the eye, the Blackbirds were among the most iconic and well-known airplanes of the Cold War. Beginning with the CIA requirement to replace the U-2 "Dragon Lady" in the 1950s, Clarence "Kelly" Johnson and his famous team at the Lockheed " Skunk Works" created a family of airplanes whose performance has never been equaled since being retired. Starting with the single-seat A-12 for the Central Intelligence Agency in the early 1960s, Johnson and his Skunk Works team created airplanes that went higher, faster, were "stealthy," and were light years ahead of anything else in the sky. Sadly, in the end, it was not any enemy capabilities that killed the Blackbirds, but high operating costs and an indifferent Congress that failed to see the worth of keeping them flying. Today, Blackbirds are the pride and joy of museums across America, where they stand as testament to the national requirements of gathering intelligence over denied territory during the Cold War.
To learn more about the Lockheed Blackbirds, the people who flew and maintained them, the clandestine missions they conducted during the Cold War, and the amazing technologies behind them , join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 P.M. Eastern time. His guest this week will be retired U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, along with Blackbird and Dragon Lady driver Col. Richard Graham. Graham is the author of four books on the Blackbirds with Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press).
Today World Footprints will explore a sample of the multiple treasures that can be found in New Orleans. We will share a wonderful conversation with Chef Leah Chase of Dokie Chase restaurant fame. Chef Leah is an iconic figure in New Orleans. She was the inspiration behind Tiana, the principle character in the Disney Animated Picture Princess and the Frog. Then World Footprints will take listeners through two little known musuems, the Free People of Color museum and the African-American museum. Other stops on this audio trip include a tour through Treme and a visit to the famed Carosel bar in the Hotel Monteleone. New Orleans is a treasure trove of wonderful museums, rich history and cultural gumbo and today’s show will explore just a few of the treasure today.
