Hi Greg,

Well, five minutes is five minutes. You get what you pay for.

Better, maybe. There was still concern, correct?

Who could that be? Come on Greg. Who could attack us?

Sure. Conventional aircraft?

I think my article is a better representation of the truth. I
understand your qualms, but I don't agree.

I quoted the article I posted.

I don't have anything to say about this. What should I say?
The info is interesting but relevant.

Or it may be true. Again, interesting but irrivalent.

Yes it's nice to walk down memory lane, but I thought this
discussion was about Byrd and his trip to Antarctica
