Status: O WINGS ***** They escaped the prison-isle together, old man and brilliant son, on wings of bamboo and cloth. The articulated framework had been Icarus' idea, as had been the ingenious harness. Daedalus, aging inventor, marvelled at his son's inspiration. Marvelled, and envied. "We'll flee, Father," whispered Icarus on one dark night. Impossible, thought Daedalus. Yet the wings were built, and they carried father and son safely. Daedalus landed on Samos alone. "Too close to the sun," he mourned. Yet there was no wax in Icarus' design.... Or was it Daedalus' invention? History tells us which was the genius -- and which the fool. -- This post is COPYRIGHT 1995, Andrew Solberg. All rights reserved.
