  1. Don't pick on the leeches (actually a form of segmented worm (Annelida)) - they are very useful for excess blood removal after amputated fingers (& potentially other limbs) are re-attached. Plus they make a great fish bait as they are much tougher & stay on the hook better than night-crawlers.
  2. The issue concerning science & Covid is a variation of Schopenhauer's Law of Entropy (If you put a spoonful of wine in a barrel full of sewage, you get sewage. If you put a spoonful of sewage in a barrel full of wine, you get sewage). Politics has come in contact with some of the science. And politics ruins everything it touches.
  3. Kidney stones also pass. I nominate Kidney Stones to be the official malady of 2020 (Covid not eligible as it is technically from 2019 & not allowed to repeat).
  4. Ames Field in Michigan City (the new Ames Field, not the old one that doubled as a baseball field)
  5. Had a small crossing equator ceremony in a KC-10 inbound to Diego Garcia. Aim High.
  6. Valid point. When I was stationed in Okinawa (in USAF), there was a guy back at headquarters (Hickam AFB) who lived in Hilo (Big Island) & commuted via Aloha Air every day to Oahu. Back then they had flights every hour to Big Island, Maui, & Kauai & many people used them to commute. To bring this back around to Drum Corps - have there ever been any Corps from Hawai'i that have competed on the mainland? I know there is a HS band that used to show up in Rose Bowl parade.
  7. The large print giveth & the fine print taketh away....
  8. It’s caught in a landslide, no escape from reality.
  9. Also in 1918 there was censorship of the press that prevented coverage of certain events due to the war. The Wilson administration was a real piece of work and if this was tried today it would not be tolerated
  10. Also, 18-19 pandemic many of the death were due to bacterial pneumonia, a complication of the influenza that was often fatal due to lack of antibiotics.
  11. I had to swing by clinic the other day. Had to have temperature taken and asked questions. Hadn’t been in contact with anyone sick, but I did have Chinese food the night before.
  12. Perhaps- but who is gonna pay the lawyer? Does GH have that deep pockets? He's already had 2 years of criminal attorney fees. Plus the fees associated with the 2 YEA/Cadets lawsuits (first one over retirement & accrued vacation $, which was settled; Current one re termination). Unless the goal is to bring YEA/Cadets/DCI & whatever else he can down with him. But that will still require $
