  • ...well, now that we are telling all---I used to take the engines and scrape the clay off of the top end, fill the rest up with the compound from firecrackers (magnesium something?). I turned some wooden nose cones and hot glued then to the top. …

  • Absolutely! form the "mosquito" to the Mercury Redstone (you had to build the escape tower from 3/32" dowels.) Hours of fun. I still have "Der Red Max" on my desk, and the BigFoot launch pad in storage. I guess back in the 50s and 60s they had "…

  • kinda-sorta iffy on Atta, but I think that clears it up a bit. I'm not real certain the evidence connecting SH to al Queda, found after the invasion, has been poo-pooed as well. I don't think so. At any gaint, the NYT thinks SH (or as my 6-y…
  • There's no excuses to look for---the UN had him as not disarmed, at the same time he was diddling the Israelies by supporting terrorism, and was "involved" with al Queda. Did Atta meet with the Iraqi ambassador to Turkey? Yes? No? What's not to l…
