Won't be long now till the lawmakers sit on this long enough to get Branson to bal. Then we'll have a nice runa and hangar for sale. Lets say it sells.....do I get my share of the tax money we voted for back? If the feds take it over, do we get paid?

This isn't Branson's fault, its not the "cavers" fault, its soley the fault of our lawmakers who are afraid to miss out on a big lawsuit.

Of course, this could have been the plan all along. Wonder how much the fed saved by having Branson build that nice runway.

My favorite book of all time...read it now more than 200 times. I used to write that as my subject line in my final email upon the completion of a consulting project, back when very few people knew what it meant.(Since the movie, it wouldn't be such a good idea.)

P.S. I, too, have a predilection for furry hats.
so sad
