quatchi: Not quite sure how it translates into more attention paid to issues surrounding military families but good on her.


Because that's how military families get around. They take planes everywhere, but due to the dearth of useable airports, they can't land near their destination, so they have to just jump out of the plane and parachute to where they're going. It's not a very efficient use of resources, and I'm glad someone is calling attention to this. Maybe soon they'll get runways put in in more convenient locales.

Smoking GNU: GameSprocket: Noam Chimpsky: Hey, what happened to the Obama wants to do things with kids thread? I had a comment.

I am seeing a number of empty threads where new comments are not allowed. Maybe there is some sort of system problem going on?

I had the same Q. Saw it, then it disappeared when i clicked on it, then it reappeared, then it disappeared again.


I blame 0bama.

ZAZ: Prettner Solon joins a list of politicians, including former President George H.W. Bush, who have taken to skydiving to promote causes or for recreation.

Bush took to skydiving in 1944, before he entered politics.


Decades later, his son would take the US economy skydiving and forget to pack the chute.

You were stationed at Edwards? Man. I heard about that place. We were at Tet. Man, it was hard. Nobody remembers any of us anymore but, we were there. All we wanted was a log-ride but, they never built us one. I think Danforth wanted a log ride most of all but all he got was some lame-ass pipe up his ass. That war was hell on all of us. Especially for Danforth.

Good for her. I'm glad she enjoyed it. There's nothing quite like the feeling of jumping out of a plane at 13,000'.

Safely on the ground, she described it as "an exhilarating experience" she wouldn't hesitate to repeat.

Just like the soldiers!
