Thanks, have been seeing the same at a variety of sources now.

AllPeeps, Well said and they are also in my prayers in hopes of regaining some peace soon.

It would have been easy for him to visit the Wasserkuppe in the Rhön Mountains. Many, many German pilots first learned how to fly gliders there. Wildflecken is near there and I have visited the place many times to watch the gliders taking off and landing along with the light aircraft also kept there. The gliders are launched with a bungee on a fast winding reel and makes for quite a sight to watch a launch. The food and drink were great there too. Too bad my German girlfriend at the time did not want to fly such a small craft or even the light aircraft. Nor, to allow me to leave here while I took a flight. http://www.dw.de/the-wasserkuppe-german-glider-museum/av-16776128

S0Y, There are only three criminal acts described and outlawed in the U.S. Constitution. #1. Treason, #2. Piracy, #3. Counterfeiting. By our conversations in the past on marijuana you have remotely referred that the states do not have the right to outlaw it as well as stating outright that the federal government has no means to do so either. If you want to be truly straight down the line on that form of logic, then nothing, and I mean nothing can be outlawed other than those three crimes. I dunno, maybe you want it that way.

S0Y, Me thinks that you are having another of your Sheldon Cooper moments when it comes to understanding sarcasm. And, some very obvious sarcasm at that!
Well, that ain’t gonna happen now anyway since Warren Buffett is screwing up Burger King. About a year ago while out shopping the wife got hungry and wanted stop for something quick. I swear that I will never return again even though I rarely stop for fast food anyway.
Almost everything up here is a chain, which is why I never really go out to eat either. Same crappy food from the same suppliers, same ambiance, same noise, same annoying waiters, same floor plan. Mom and pop places are disappearing. You can find a few hold outs in small towns, but the suburbs are centrally planned deja vous inducing pits. I would rather eat a hot dog over a campfire in the woods. I do get my BBQ sauce shipped up from a place at the UAB campus though.
Thank God for Chinese places and Taqueria's the only non chain places to open in my part of the valley in the last 20 years.

ultraright, I had already been through an area some two plus decades earlier where PCBs had been purposely dumped illegally on an open area on Ft Bragg. It had been illegal long before then. Make all the excuses you wish with Monsanto, they refused to take responsibility for their actions for years and did more to cover it up. I am not at all happy with them and for good reason.

Freak, For Heaven’s sake, I was about to start some lunch!

Yes it is. Have hd to do it at a number of crime scenes and mostly traffic accidents. Not what I would call fun, but had to be done.
I understand the need thing, it's the want thing that is truly sad..
Never could understand the people that kept a "Body Book" of pictures from their most spectacular crashes and homicides, generally the type that "plays" police officer.

WorldWildWalker, You’ve got a point there. Rush opened his show yesterday talking about Reid’s injuries. They occurred in January and still look that bad? Rush speculated that who could possibly look the way he does after an innocent encounter with a piece of exercise equipment? He further speculated that maybe if somebody repeatedly threw him into it. My impression that I drew from that is possibly some union boss(es) were pissed for some reason and sent some goons to….shall I say, to remind him just who is boss!

The flight experts and pilots in the know about the Airbus jets and their computers Have been saying the exact opposite. Several had said that he would have had to turn off the computer flight controls to manually take the aircraft into the mountainside. Otherwise the computers would have automatically taken over to avoid a flight pattern into the ground.
I heard someone on Rush's show the other day, a pilot familiar with this type of Aircraft, say that there was a way to do a controlled emergency decent with the autopilot where you input the starting altitude, the rate of decent and the ending altitude and explained that the autopilot would just continue to fly the decent rate if the last bit of data was left out. Sounded plausible.
@Father: Thanks for the mention of Rush's show; I'll go and check it out today, somehow I missed that on his program.
I think it was last Wednesday or Thursday. It was before they had heard the voice recorder info and the guy was trying to explain the controlled decent that neither turned right nor left, but went straight into the mountain.

So true. I have always referred to them as “Free range target zones.”
