    Yeah... I finally watched that part a few days ago. Shocking, but not incredibly surprising. :( I don't find that exec that answered incredibly credible.

    Agree... our healthcare system is very messed up. When I look at the EOBs that I receive, I'm just blown away by the costs (but not all the surprising, given the stuff I hear in the media).

    Oh. Sounds like we crossed seas but never met. I've never been on one of those.

    We don't really look at flattops as anything other than targets.

    See you are from Idaho. I went to NPTU in Idaho, class of 7601 at A1W, or as I called it Alice in Wonderland.

    Although it was a great engineering feat, I didn't see any technological breakthroughs in the solar plane. The biggest innovation were the solar panels that were molded to be the body of the wing. I was surprised they could raise $120M for something that has no commercial future. I missed the end since it was cutoff to see where they were going with this other than setting records. This seemed akin to Branson trying to go around the world in a balloon.
