Re: Re: Alienation.
@ Jerry: I think what I was harping at wasn't about change per se -- but about monopolistic behavior. We are a capitalistic society -- meaning we try to pay as cheaply as possible while st...

Re: Re: Thunder: How close is too close?
Not that I know... But I suspect a healthy degree of CYA in BSA rules? 30/30? Very roughly, sound travel 1 mile every 5 seconds. Three miles away good enough? Let's add another for buf...
