NY Times Features Ian Flemming, Who Created James Bond in Jamaica

NY Times looks back on the life of Ian Flemming, who created James Bond (007) in Jamaica. Flemming who died in 1964 would have been 100 years old this year. The NY Times story takes readers and viewers back to Jamaica. Ian Flemming was a wise man, he knew just how great Jamaica is. If it wasn't for Jamaica there would be no James Bond. Yup, had Flemming written the stories from another location James Bond probably would have been named Richard Kond (008), which is not as ingenious as James Bond (007).
