社評 1105 我們向李柯克致敬
認識李柯克已經有十多年了，他今年高壽九十六 ，仍然每天精神抖擻地走進辦公室， 泡上一杯蜂蜜加蕷果醋， 是他長壽秘诀。
李柯克主持的飛諾斯電訊公司已經有七十歷史， 他的地下電纜遍及大休斯敦地區， 有數十萬哩之多 ，包括著名萊斯大學及各大學區皆使用他的地下電纜服務。
早在五O年代， 李柯克曾參加了美國阿拉默曼哈頓原子彈計劃， 當他移居休斯敦後，和當時之富豪積克遜及歌星柯斯比合組了飛諾斯電訊電䌫公司， 前二人過世後，由他獨自支撐到今天。
每逢星期二我們常在澳洲牛排館共進午餐， 他非常喜歡吃甜紅土豆和三文魚 ，據他說每天只吃一餐 ，身體仍然非常硬朗 並且也在多年前老伴過世後再續絃再娶。
我常常從李柯克之身上找到人生真正的意義， 他就是永不退休， 直到生命的最後一天吧。
We Salute Mr. Lee Cook
I have known Lee Cook for more than ten years. He is now 96 years old, but still works in the office with trembling spirits every day. He always drinks honey mixed with apple cider and warm water. This is his secret for longevity.
The telecommunications company Phonoscope Fiber was formed 70 years ago by Mr. Cook. He is recognized as a true telecom trailblazer.
The Phonoscope fiber optic symmetrical connections operate at the speeds of 10 mbps to 400 mbps. They have more than 23,000 miles of pure fiber backbone and provide a very reliable service, including Rice University and many school districts.
Based in Houston, they have a history of innovation dating back to 1953 and have grown to be the largest private metro-area 100% pure-light ethernet network in the nation and in the world.
Two years ago our company became his customer and his system is now used by our TV station and our telephone system.
Today coincides with the twenty anniversary of the International Trade Center. We are setting up a special achievement award for Mr. Lee Cook.
I often find the true meaning of life from him. He will never retire until the last day of his life.
