Edwards Air Force Base – What a place!
The last few days were spent in the peaceful environs of Tehachapi, CA with a group of Airstream trailer folks. While there, we visited Edwards Air Force Base. After seeing the new F-35, F-22 and old F-16, among other weapons of mass destruction, I walked away marveling at our ingenuity and our capacity for bending the laws of nature (to an extent) to our will. While there, we heard the breaking of the sound barrier from one of their tests. Ah, if we could only be so ingenious in finding ways for peace. One would think that we would get it right after more than 2000 years of trying.
