- Alaskan Aviation - 1,519 words
ALASKAN AVIATION ALASKAN AVIATION Have you ever looked real close at the maps of Alaska? The next time you see a map look for the little airplane symbol in every little town and village in Alaska. That symbol indicates an airstrip. That symbol also means that that is were some unfortunate bush pilot crashed and said, "This looks like a good place for an airstrip."

- Global Warming - 1,544 words
Global Warming (After a lot of reading and hunting around on the net, I found a great deal of information on this topic.
