So your underlying questions was not whether carriers should be done away with but rather should more focus be placed on finding a true 'next generation' replacement. While the theater of war has changed over the decades, the absolute requirement for air superiority has not for numerous reasons alre...

Went through the same process with XM a couple months ago. They didn't offer the half off deal so I cancelled. Got the 5 months for $20 deal in the mail last week.
Also, just left Dish because they 'only' do 2 yr contracts. With Xfinity + internet now with no contract; on the waiting list for a X1 ...

Thanks, I was curious because the 'section of name change' doesn't specify in that case. So, as long as the father is alive and keeps paying support the kids are stuck with his name. That situation must come up often....

If no one has mentioned it yet, check out the bioluminescent kayak trip. That will be cooler than the rainforest excursions. OSJ was cool but be careful if you go in search of real cuban cigars....

[quote]Honestly, grad school for me was better than undergrad. We were not allowed to pick a Ph.D. advisor until after completion of our first year, which allowed more focus on our core didactic classes. Second year was still mostly class, but picked an advisor and started working on small projects....

If you were around in the 90s and early 2000s it should be. Those were good times to be a Cowboy's fan. When was the last time people sat behind the NEZ???
But I haven't lived in LC since 2002 so I don't know which crowd you might be referring to....

If MSU wins I will be the guy resurrecting the 'dying coachroach'.
This will be the second game I make this year. The other was the rainy game earlier this year. Hope the crowds better for this one.
