OK, maybe because I'm a journalist and not a p.r. flack (and I mean that lovingly), but doesn't anyone else see the teensy-weensiest commercialization of the use of Yeager's name? The news release could've easily been done without the reference to the pilot. I get what you're saying about unintended references, but I actually see this as rather blatant use. And a news release isn't news, and it IS a paid form of communication (you do get paid to write one on someone's behalf, don't you?) I don't think it has anything to do with the medium of distribution (online vs. email). Just my two cents.
