2. Well....

I guess we need to start carrying around our video cams, binoculars, etc., etc. so if we see this kind of stuff going on we can prove it to those who call us tinfoilhatters.

3. That IS a dandy headline, isn't it?

Many years ago, I lived on my 60 acre "hippie homestead" (long since sold). One day while leaving he hill to go to town, I rounded the corner to head down the real freaky part of the driveway over looking the Kettle River Valley in Washington only to look RIGHT INTO THE EYES of a jet jocky flying an F-15! They were practicing "canyon flying". They gotta practice, I suppose...sure freaked ME out!

9. The official jargon is, "nape of the Earth flying."

I was in a unit that did a lot of that while flying helicopters on airmobile missions.

Same flying concept, same jargon, whether it is choppers or fast movers.

13. Same sort a thing happened to me in the hollers of Tennessee. I was

helping an instrument maker friend fix his roof, when a jet did a barrel-roll right over us. I mean **right over** I could clearly see the pilot's head. My friend slipped off the roof in his surprise, Busted his wrist. And that delayed the completion of the instrument he was making for me. It was the early seventies and the pilots were training for the terrain of Vietnam, or so folk said.

6. Public safety?!

Those things crash every now and then. That would have been 'safe' had it happened in downtown Miami...or anywhere else in the country. Really brilliant these military minds.

7. Practicing for what?

In case of martial law being implemented and some armed insurgents fighting back? In case Cuba invades Florida? What?

18. North Korean paratroopers.

Just kidding. It's probably in case of an illegal assembly and they need to deliver some crowd control projectiles.
