Re: Believe it or not


I agree with you completely. I've become involved in some far number of
political messes that arose simply because the people involved stirred the pot
till some "outside" party took note of something going on "over there." I
think we are fairly safe until some climber thinks money or notoriety can be
had by coming after us.

But, once the ball begins rolling, ... Someone wrote of rocketry; I've been
involved in that for probably 38 years. When I began, we could build metal
shelled units and fuel them with whatever fertile minds could imagine. Now, my
son and I have had to get licensed with the BATF as explosive manufacturers to
do our own engines and the local July 4th. show for our town (talk about hoops
to jump through!).

Have a great day all,
Bill Langston
