When I first read the title, I read "logging" as a verb. I had visions of removing our existing congressmen and allowing a new batch to regenerate.

This caused me to wonder a couple of things:
  • Is their a market for congressmen? Can they be put to some other use?
  • I wonder, are they considered an invasive species?
  • Is there any reason to consider protecting some of the "old growth"?

And before some Homeland Security type puts me on a watch list: no, I'm not advocating violence.

Come see us! We would love to see you at the inside booth or the outside equipment booth. Just a heads up to all, next year it isn't in Green Bay. It is being held in Oshkosh, Wi. Have a graet weekend all.

Great Oshkosh is only 15 miles from me.    If it is held at EAA grounds they have great facilities and camping area.  Just guessing about location.
