No Charles, some people do give a lot of thought to Presidents today. Especially those two. TheyRead More want to impeach the current one like Nixon, and wish that Reagan was actually the President resembling his hagiography. Still others express their indifference while commenting from the beach, presumably planning their future, watching their investments, and the indifference of people to Presidents, or at least why it should be nothing but.

Why aren't articles like this being put in the email notification sooner. I know they are on theRead More Patch site but sometimes people use their email prompt. Just a suggestion.

MayMom, the emailed newsletters are a little like getting a newspaper. There has to be a deadline.Read More Ours is 6 a.m. So at 6 a.m., the newsletter sends out everything posted in the last 24 hours. To get more timely delivery of news: 1) check your favorite Patch home page (you can set it up as your personal home page) 2) subscribe to a section -- for example, police and fire -- and you'll be notified when new stories in that category are posted 3) subscribe to the Facebook page and/or Twitter accounts of your hometown Patch. :-)

What a wonderful project for JSerra. Getting the kids involved in giving instead of getting is theRead More spirit. Loving kindness, warm hearts and the stretched out hand of tolerance.

Maybe it is his age but Ray Biel was a co pilot on the B29 Full House which was a weather plane. AndRead More there was no third A bomb as there were only two made at that time. A thrid one would not be ready for several weeks. One can google Ray Biel, Full House or the plane that dropped the second bomb Bocks car and read the full story.

The Full House was listed as carrying a back-up bomb on the Nagasaki bombing. Whether it was nuclearRead More or not, I don't know (not sure that Biel does either). The Enola Gay did weather reconnaissance Aug. 9 (over Kokura).
