There is always Redwing,

St James Hotel Redwing Minnesota
7, 58 highways 3rd & 4th sts zipcode 55066. 58 outside of 711 in gps coordinates
Redwing corner angle shaped.

Dylan's "Blind Willie McTell"

Well, God is in His heaven
And we all want what’s His
But power and greed and corruptible seed
Seem to be all that there is
I’m gazing out the window
Of the St. James Hotel
And I know no one can sing the blues
Like Blind Willie McTell

Red Wing is a city in Goodhue County, Minnesota, United States, on theMississippi River. The population was 16,459 at the 2010 census.It is thecounty seat of Goodhue County.
Red Wing is home of Red Wing Shoes, Riedell Ice and Roller Skates and Red Wing Stoneware. The Cannon Valley Trail has its eastern terminus in Red Wing. Treasure Island Resort & Casino is on the nearby Prairie Island Indian Reservation. The National Trust for Historic Preservation placed Red Wing on its 2008 distinctive destinations list, which adds twelve communities annually nationwide. Red Wing was added for its "impressive architecture and enviable natural environment."Red Wing is connected to Wisconsin by Red Wing Bridge (officially named the Eisenhower Bridge); it carries U.S. Route 63 over the Mississippi River and its backwaters.
This city was named after the Sioux chief, Red Wing.He was one of a succession of Mdewakanton Dakota chiefs whose name "Red Wing" came from their use of a dyed swan's wing as their symbol of rank. His Sioux name was Hupahuduta ("Wing of the Wild Swan Dyed Red"). He was an ally of British soldiers during the War of 1812,

but after a vision where he saw the Americans driving out the British, he took a stance of neutrality.

He later was known as L'Aile Rouge, by the French Canadians, and later still took the name Shakea, or "The Man Who Paints Himself Red" after passing the name Red Wing on to a successor. During his lifetime, there were few pioneers, and Red Wing was known as a firm friend of the United States, keeping peace with the settlers and trading for goods that were valued by his tribe.
The city and the Chief may have been an influence on the name of the Red Wing (song)

WASHINGTON—Explaining that he failed to hit his national growth goals for the April-June period, the White House’s Office of Personnel Management confirmed Tuesday that President Barack Obama fell just short of earning a quarterly performance bonus. “We lay out our expectations very clearly in a meeting with the president at the beginning of every fiscal quarter, and unfortunately he came up a bit shy of meeting the targets we set for him,” said White House administrator Sarah Hammond, citing a number of factors that reflected negatively on Obama’s performance evaluation, including his inability to raise GDP by the stipulated 2.75 percent or create 750,000 new jobs, benchmarks that Hammond said were “ambitious, but achievable.” “The president knew what his Q2 goals for health care sign-ups were, but he was unable to deliver the numbers we were looking for. He certainly didn’t knock it out of the park like [Secretary of Transportation] Anthony Foxx, who easily exceeded his target of 20 new highway interchanges over the same period. Now, if President Obama could achieve anything close to that next quarter, it would go a long way toward securing that $1,500 bonus.” At press time, sources confirmed that the president was somberly explaining to his wife and children that their trip to California would have to wait until next year.

Let's get back to the 102's that you say we're not there in the 60's but the Air Force says that they were. The squadron stayed in Soesterberg don't remember saying anything about a wing moving, if I did I erred.
Not that I give a shit, but many of the 102's were transferred to the Air National Guard in the sixties, some stayed around for a while as target aircraft in the AF...Hell, the Turks were flying them in the time-frame you mention..along with F-5's, F-86's and F-100's. Of course we were also flying F-100's about that time, along with issuing M-2 carbines to Security forces in the Middle East and around the World..I've seen troops climb into the exhaust section of a F-100 to stay dry during the Monsoon, and a Crew Chief accidentally eject himself in one of those bitches..

So you agree that 102's were at CNA for the bulk of the 60's, that's smarter than your alter ego. Figured you would change subject.

I guess if one must make a completely inconsequential point, then the F-102 was in service during the sixties....never mind in what nonessential capacity or mission it served at that time.

I will say though I never saw one mission ready in TAC or SAC....maybe out in front of a Air Base mounted on a display stand.

I did love another Convair delta-wing, the B-58, never found the F-102 very interesting from my vantage point as a dog handler.

It was pretty in it's day, never a world beater. CNA did win the William Tell competition in '66 flying them, it was a big deal back then. Would of been a great base if all we had were T-33's

Yes, you can always count on 'Redd' showing up after Barney has botched things up into such a confused mess, he knows even he can't confuse and lie his way out anymore!!
Not that 'Redd' is smart...or clear...or has straightened out the debacle 'Barney' has made...
But Barney THINKS that it does, so in the world of Barney, that makes it so!
Of course, Barney is the only one fooled into believing he has pulled anything off...but it does manage to shut him up...if only for a couple of days...but man, those are peaceful days!!!

Sorry "speller feller" bur Redd seldom visits because this thread and Topix in general has become predictable and boring, filled with the same tired people, saying the same things.

Sorta like Facebook when the old farts took over.

BTW, why is it that so many of you seem so incapable of just not responding to Barney if you hate him so much? Makes one wonder. Gotta give Barney credit though, his posts followed by y'alls responses at least give some of you something to help pass the time.

And the beat goes on........

Sorry 'Redd' but for one that doesn't visit here much anymore, your appearances are predictable, and occur at Barneys breaking point...every single time.

Why must you and Barney always accuse those that disagree with you as haters?
And if your theory would be true, why dont you hold Barney to that same accountability? Why wouldn't you include Barney in your 'incapable of responding' list? Of course, the answer is Crystal clear!!
Barney, you and Redd live by a double standard...a typical democrat demand...do as I say, not as I do.
Makes one wonder why you would want to be able to say anything and never be crossed, yet get upset and challenge others to stop responding to you/barney and whine about being hated, so that you can continue your rants without another opinion offered?
Exactly like a liberal loon!!!

You go right ahead and give yourself a big 'atta boy' and all the credit you want to.
You need yourself in it corner!

Barney's breaking point came when he decided to sit back and watch what the poster would do now that he been told by another veteran pretty much the same thing as what I said.

Loved the response; You have the same message as Barney, WE will shoot you too.

It is obvious the poster is a bit light in their loafers, but carrying a grudge will only weigh them down.

Please understand I am speaking for myself and myself only, I WELCOME your response!

With your hate filled retorts toward the messenger, a rebuttal that does not acknowledge the subject at hand or offer any documentation to support your opinion or argument as the case may be.

When that happens I know I have driven a dagger straight into the heart of Republican propaganda BULL-SHIT.

Barney is a political activist.

In my opinion Redd is a intelligent individual looking for entertainment in way of discourse with persons that are at least some what lucid.

I would also go so far as to say Redd would not be intimidated, but very much enjoy a conversation with one he deems much brighter than himself.

Perhaps that will give you a bit of insight to the behavior of least two individuals who visit this thread.

Have you become Robert Dole, speaking in third person? You used 20 post telling me that CNA didn't have 102's in the 60's. Then you made a bid deal out of the fact that the military did not take your draft card away when a person enlists. You're wasting what little credibility you have, providing us with the articles to prove you wrong. But as little Andrew says "you're funny"

Wednesday at a Senate hearing with officials from the Department of Homeland Security testifying on the influx of unaccompanied children crossing into the border states, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) blasted U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske for issuing a set of instructions in an attempt to block members of Congress from taking pictures and speaking to children and agents during there fact-finding trips to the strained facilities.

The Arizona lawmaker was enraged as he grilled the stunned DHS official and said, "You're telling me I can't even speak to staff there?"

McCain continued, "The people of Arizona elected me and I'm not supposed to even carry a cell phone with me, You have overstepped your responsibilities and your authority, Sir, and I want those instructions revoked as far as members of congress are concerned and I want it done today."
