Derided by some, Alaska volcano monitors spot on

There are 1 comment on the The Associated Press story from Mar 24, 2009, titled Derided by some, Alaska volcano monitors spot on . In it, The Associated Press reports that:

A month after Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal complained about wasteful spending in President Barack Obama's economic stimulus package _ including money he sneered was for 'something called 'volcano monitoring'' _ Alaska pilots were grateful for such expenditures.

The Alaska Volcano Observatory was ready with warnings to flight officials when Alaska's Mount Redoubt blew, sending potentially deadly ash clouds north of Anchorage.

Readings from seismometers and atmospheric pressure sensors alerted scientists that an eruption had occurred. Weather radar confirmed the presence of an ash cloud that ascended more than 11 miles above sea level.

OOOOpppppssss......... maybe Bobby Brady ought to consider changing his name now. Perhaps he should watch an episode of Leave It To Beaver and then become Lumpy Jindall.
