    I wonder if the sixth grade science classes know about the prohibition on model rocketry?

    Sad part is .... all the way through Bush W ..... the commander and chief would get off the plane go to a hanhar and address the troops ..... the local media would know about it and the whole town .... state .... region would perk up, guess this little state is just not important enough any more. Aha ... the good old days, even Jimmy Carter went up to the Talkeetnas to fly fish for real big Grayling .... it is a different world ....
