Same here

I hunt occasionally very close to the 27 break. Very good book. Should be required reading for engineering students on how not to do things.

Great book, couldn't put it down. It should be required reading for engineers. Eads was a stud.

My GF is from an old Uptown family and she tells stories handed down to her about family members dancing on the dining room table when Huey was killed. I'm from N. LA and distantly related to the Longs, so we agree to disagree about this
