Surface with a Smile
I enjoyed Steve Rushin's column on the Zamboni (AIR AND SPACE, Nov. 28). When my son Tyler was four, we were out for a walk when we saw a man riding toward us on a motorized wheelchair. Tyler pointed at him and shouted, "Daddy, look at that man! He's wearing a Bruins jacket!" The man smiled as he rolled past, and after a moment's pause my son added, "And he's driving a Zamboni!"

Just as Rushin's ever clever words were reaching your readers, the Board of Electors of the World Figure Skating Hall of Fame in Colorado Springs voted to induct the late Frank J. Zamboni to the Hall in 2006. This is an honor bestowed upon only the greats of the sport ( Sonja Henie, Dick Button, Peggy Fleming, Katarina Witt, among others). I am thrilled for the Zamboni family, as anyone who takes to the ice should be.
