Now days they tape videos of all the Bomber games.

Wouldn't it be great to see a high light film of the great
Bomber teams of yester year. In particular, the '62-'63 Bomber
basketball team. What a memorable season. Maybe Mr. House or
Mr. Stein took some 8MMs of their sons playing that year.

Re: Bomber-babes Rule

Now I gotta say that if anyone could have come up with a better
buncha ladies than we got in Richland, I'd like to hear about
it. I'm not worried cuz it just couldn't happen. Today we gots
two a my favorites (I wonder if I really make any points with
this favorites stuff)... I was so happy to see one of them last
month at the '65er 70th b-day party... it was funny cuz I
looked her husband inna eye and thought man I know I know this
guy... well duh... a corse I did... well I could go on and on
but just take a look at any of the "big pool" photos floating
around and you will agree... none of the Beach towns can hold
a candle to our Bomber-babes... HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Leslie JACOBSON
('64) and Jackie JANCOVIC ('65) on your special day, October
25, 2017!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Statistics

Somebody (Benjamin Disraeli, I believe) once said that there
are lies, damned lies... and statistics. Guns per 1000
residents is one thing but total guns is yet another. In any
event, my comment was about a specific city; not a county or a
state. FYI, Wyoming and Alaska are so sparsely populated that
they each have only one US Representative.

When one has a college degree, one should be expected to pay
attention to detail; or simply pay attention at all.

Re: Texas and weapons

Interesting. I think John ALLEN ('66) was alluding to the 
fact that Plano, TX is listed as the highest per capita gun
ownership in the nation, as well as one of the lowest homicide
rates in the nation. The per capita ratio is skewed as Wyoming
with 570k population is a state where it is not uncommon for
people to own 40 or more guns individually. The only really
populated state in the statistics Mike FRANCO ('70) listed is
Virginia, and that's concentrated in the Northern quadrant. 

In any event, I am readjusting to Texas having been in
Washington for eight years. I love both places, but my ashes
will be spread in Texas. I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here
as soon as I could.

	30s this weekend.
