Hey Elliot - come back to DC when you are ready. The scene is ready for you, and there's lots of new spots where guys over 40 (including me) can go. I've skated on and off here since the 1980s, so I know what you mean feeling unwelcome. It's better now.
Fred, Well said.Planes are a great thing with great mobility. But when they bring us Ebola. Maybe we should ban planes - if the liberals do not want to stop ebola from coming here from West Africa.
I suppose I'm "ready for Hillary" but it's by default.I'd rather have Cory Booker for President but is America ready to have an outspoken, confident, assertive, northern Black man in office?
About 99.9% of us who are searched to board planes are innocent. So can we just stop searching folks on planes for weapons? We can just tolerate the random acts of terrorism. This is the judge's argument in a nutshell.This judge's ruling will be tossed out since it makes little logical sense.
Now is the time to use this potential wealth to start dscussing peace, with all parties, including the Taliban. I am sure that even the Taliban will be ready to stop fighting so that everybody will profit from that wealth. I am sure also that China is ready to cooperate with the US, provided that the latter is ready to share for the good of all. This wealth could be for better or for worse, depending on how we are able to cooperate with others.
Getting the population ready for what? You and I are going to die. Everything including life is not subject to a cure. If people don't know that, we should all ask why, and yes help them get ready.
Mr. Mouawad says in his teaser: "Two recent accidents, one of them fatal, involving commercial rockets have underscored the high risks and soaring costs involved in any spaceflight" The same could be said of the development of the early trains, planes or trained elephants! If you take the long view, neither of these accidents will be significant in the long term development of spaceflight as long as we learn from it. People died when planes and trains were being developed. The risks were high. Costs soared--but with a long term view, see how much we have accomplished. Trains, planes and elephants are just part of the norm now!
