If we’ve gotten to the point where we are paying people in the state education apparatus to spend their time on this, then maybe we need to rethink how we spend “education” money.

That is the subtext of this statement. If I were a Canadian subject to the taxes to support the government system, I’d be mad as hell that when it comes to his own health, this government official is acknowledging by his actions that the government system isn’t up to snuff.

This past weekend we had a lot of snow here. I spent a lot of time shoveling snow and little time modeling. As I live in the south, it should be the reverse.
Here is the view from my front porch on Monday.
Here is the view in the back yard.
The modelchild got to sled yesterday and seemed to enjoy it.

This book, by Journal editor Chris Bucholtz. So far, so good.
I read this and was torn between laughing and crying. I can’t believe a city is wasting taxpayer dollars coming up with “suggestions” like this.

Not sure if this is good or bad, but it is interesting.

This photo of an Afgan An-26 was taken by Maj. C.T. Knights during his deployment to Afganistan.

I love getting the Small Air Forces Observer (SAFO). It is a dying breed of magazine, a self-published specialty magazine. It caters to that small segment of modelers and avaition historians who focus on Small Air Forces. I suspect that at some point the magazine will be replaced by a website, since much of what it does today would now be done on a website if you were starting from scratch. However, since SAFO has been around 33 years, it will probably continue in its present format for some time.
This issue has several interesting articles, including part 2 of an article on Buffalo pilots with kills in the NEI theatre. There are articles on Piper aircraft in Katanga and small air force Beech Bonanzas. The magazine is black and white and not nearly up to modern publishing standards, however, it contains information that one doesn’t find elsewhere. I’ll continue to get it as long as it is published.
