lucky walkie-talkie

Today is the birthday of Chester Gould, creater of Dick Tracy. Gould, while visiting his inventor friend Al Gross saw a wrist-watch two-way radio. This "walkie-talkie, " partially developed by Gross, inspired Gould to add a wrist radio for his comic strip character Dick Tracy.

As I tell kids, it pays to have good friends.
