"Hey, Deke. True story. I was born on the evening of April 3rd, 1926. That just happened to be the night before Easter Sunday. The Easter Bunny personally delivered me to my house. Me and him, we go a long way back.”
"Gus, are you telling me this so that you can keep the baby rabbit for yourself?"
"Yes."
"It isn’t happening."

The Apollo 1 memorial sculpture at the Science Center of Pinellas County. This bronze was dedicated in 1972.  This center is located in St. Petersburg, not far from where Ed’s family lived for a long time. He also has a hospital named after him here. I might visit it tomorrow night, it has some of his personal effects there.
