Wasting tax payer money to determine who's fault it is is ridiculous. I'm blaming it on what's his name! Too be honest though, if your IQ is above "W's" record setting low of 4, I expect you know it's really his fault. To fly a plane around to figure that out is simply amazing! I haven't been elected yet so my IQ of 0 is not a record yet.
We are in the south, you must always keep that in mind. Family matters. Matters being in this case a noun.
Duh

So can anyone explain why they have to use Canadian registered plane to do the mapping? Are we outsourcing this as well? I just happen to know about 10 American pilots that are out of work thanks to our Fecal Gov't lackies.
Seriously

We live ina global economy now, you must understand that, everything is bidded out to the lowest bidder, jobs, underware, toothpicks and pilots. Why do you think our economy is in such great shape now?

Isn't it ironic? We send our youth (including me) to fight for international corporate interests while we waive flags made in China. What will we love more? Remember, they hate us for our freedoms.

Maybe it's a proprietary system owned by a Canadian company. It might be cheaper to bring them in than to develop one domestically. That's just a guess. I don't know the answer, and I have not looked into it.

True. Does anyone remember why we went to Irag? Does anyone know what we got out of it? People can be convinced to do just about anything.

More importantly, that's what General Washington warned us of and meant it.
.
Eisenhower turned his back on Ho Chi Minh and backed the French, which lead to Vietnam (including sending advisors, essentially entering the French-Indochina wars) Eisenhower got us into the diabolical have been with Iraq as Qasim's overthrow lead to the rise of Hussein and the Ba'athist Party. Eisenhower initiated the beginnings of Operation Ajax which we're still dealing with Iran.
.
If you believe in blow back, Eisenhower was the mother of all failed foreign policies as it pertains to the Middle East and every trailing event.
.
Eisenhower, like most politicians, talked out of both sides of his mouth. I ruined my old man's adulation of Reagan and Eisenhower, too... so don't feel left out.

It appears to be an ever changing story. At first we went in because they were behind 9/11, which turned out to be false. Then it was because they backed backed AQ (which turned out to be not only false, but VERY false...AQ was a threat to the Sunni's secular ways which included women's rights.) Then it was yellow cake (which also turned out to be false) Then it turned out to be WMDs (which while they did have some, made in the USA was printed on them, and we gave the WMDs to them to fight the Iranians, but Saddam used them on his own people instead.) And now it appears to be the "Freedom Agenda" which has Islamistists taking over brutal dictatorships that were backed by the USA... oh joy.

"In the Garden of Beasts" is an interesting account of the years just prior to WWII. Don't confuse it with "Garden of Beasts" which is a fiction (and not a bad one) that is coincidentally set in nearly the same period. It's nothing you don't already know, but still worth reading if you haven't already. It has nothing to do with the fault line in Louisa County.

Heh, reality bites' words sent me on a tangent... sorry.
.
I'll add it to my bucket list, which has been getting longer, thanks.(the older I get, the less time I have to myself)
.
I don't really care about the mapping of fault lines, it's probably a good idea.

And, not to be confused with "In a Garden of Breasts"; what an outstanding erotic thriller. Read it as a youngster and happy mammaries of that book still linger.
