In 1988, Dr. James E. Hansen, a NASA scientist, testified before the Senate about the impending doom of global warming. Dr. Hansen made much of that day’s temperature, which was 98 degrees, to add some theatrics to his message.
Dr. Hansen testified again on 23 June 2008, this time before Congress, stressing that,
the world has long passed the “dangerous level” for greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and needs to get back to 1988 levels.

The Marine Corps version of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) – aka the Lightning II – the F-35B , is the version of the JSF intended for vertical takeoff and landings. According to Aviation Week,

The 44-minute flight of aircraft BF-1, the first production-representive F-35, from Lockheed’s Fort Worth, Texas, plant also marked the start of a five-year, 5,000-plus test program involving three variants of the Joint Strike Fighter: the CTOL F-35A, STOVL F-35B and aircraft carrier-capable F-35C.

On this Fathers’ Day it is appropriate to remember one of the greatest fathers ever (outside the author’s own). Dave Thomas was the founder of Wendy’s and an adopted child. He founded the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. A wonderful charity, please visit the site.
