Call that Propane guy in the white t-shirt. He will keep the flame on just for the free ad.

Veterans can be jerks like anyone else. $12,000 a year is a big hunk of change for a 'pilot light'. Hope the local memorial-happy pols take note.

Here are my fearless predictions.
In the AFC Championship Game
Baltimore at Pittsburgh

In the NFC Championship Game
Philadelphia at Carolina

In the Super Bowl

Philadelphia & Pittsburgh

I will not predict a winner on that one. I leave that up to you folks.

Doing the math it comes out approx $33 a day for gas for the flame. 745 Bullhead pro-vet citizens each donating 1.35 a month would
more than pay for the memorial flame . Has Bullhead city got that many pro-vets citizens?

Really... thats a nobrainer! Have the flame sponsered by a park bench with and ad that is placed near by. How it can be that high is beyond me anyhow... it is a small flame and it costs 961.00?? highway robbery?

They apparently have some vets (I'd check to see if they're 'real' vets) who think that's the best use of $12,000 taxpayer dollars.
And what does a willingness to be stupid about a memorial have to do with being 'pro vet'. That flame does nothing for a vet.
Better they should have erected a 'Permanent Refrigerator Magnet'.

What do you know about what this memorial means to a Vet anyway?
It's a memorial to Medal Of Honor winners.
Your ignorance is only exceded by your total disrespect.
And as for the "Permanent Refrigerator Magnet"
Let's just say it would look better erected over your mouth.

What do you know about MOH recipients thoughts on tank-town pork barrelers using them for halo-effect?
