The X-Factor - no, not the silly game show.
I first learned of the concept of the X-Factor in a series of novels written in the '70s and '80s - the genre was called "Men's Adventure". Yes, it played a significant role in my outlook on life. No, I won't tell you the title, and no, it wasn't Mack Bolan or Remo flippin' Williams. ;)
But the X-Factor has been ever-present in the way I live my life - it is the unexpected, the variable you can't control and often can't even conceive. It's Murphy on steroids.
The last week or so the X-Factor has been all up in the Citadel, III Arms, my personal life, and elsewhere - in a good way.
Have you ever ridden the face of an avalanche? I haven't, but I think I know what it must feel like, it has been that kind of week.
Cross your fingers, folks.
And remember - every Founder and every single one of you who supported the Citadel and III Arms, you are the hero in this drama.
More later, when it gels.
