Much as I love to give Bob a hard time, I have enormous respect for him. No one, perhaps in all human history, has had as much success at kludging things together. I certainly don't know anyone else who has a kludge in the Smithsonian, especially literally in the shadow of the space shuttle Discovery.

My job is to tell him when his kludges go to far. Like this one!
