    I really like this quote from Colin Powell: What is the greatest threat facing us now? People will say terrorism. But are there any terrorists in the world who can change the American way of life or our political system? Only we can change ourselves.

  1. I read about parkour a while ago. I think in the New Yorker magazine


    Just now I looked up the Wikipedia article


    certain things about the thought and attitudes underlying parkour impress me

    I expect it can also be graceful an beautiful to watch---if not too scary.


    Here is the Wikipedia article on CVN carriers.


    It says that the CVN-77 is expected to be commissioned in late 2008


    It says two Westinghouse A4W reactors, with the turbines developing a total of

    260,000 ship horsepower. A rough estimate would be 194 Megawatts. Sufficient for a mediumsize city's electric power requirements, I should say.

    Beautiful ships.
