    When I was based at Windsor locks, conn Id watch the H-64 sky cranes practice simulation of loads breaking. Im not sure what was happening inside the cockpit, but from the outside, the aircraft would go from a hover at 100 feet to about 1000 feet in very short order.

    Sounds like a sure fire way to lose your lunch, todays and yesterdays.
    In my work with the defendants (at the Nuremberg Trails 1945-1949)
    I was searching for the nature of evil and I now think I have come close to defining it. A lack of empathy. Its the one characteristic that connects all the
    defendants, a genuine incapacity to feel with their fellow men.

    Evil, I think, is the absence of empathy.
