I'll be damned, the old boy is still around. If you look at the corporate listing, it has the owner as Ms. Marcus Neely. So it's either owned by his wife, or he was keeping a pretty big secret from us back in the day. Marcus may have never applied for a patent and only put the Pat. Pending notice on there to scare the copiers away. I seem to remember him saying something like that at MontNeel.
