Marconi's Big Ears

Thunderstruck by Erik Larson has countless gems about Marconi. I thought I would share one with you this morning.

When Marconi was born on April 25 1874, an elderly gardener saw the new baby and exclaimed, "Che orecchi grandi ha!" ("What big ears he has!") Marconi's ever protective Irish Mom, Annie, took offense and replied:

"He will be able to hear the still, small voice of the air."

Indeed.
