None the less, here is one:

I didn't get all the way through the GB (will get back to), but I'm inclined to like the KM better.

Buddy Rich was a pretty fair drummer as well.

There was a drummer named Sandy Nelson that we listened to in the 60s. Let There Be Drums.

Alexei Leonov: First person to walk in space dies aged 85
quote:
Soviet cosmonaut Alexei Leonov, who became the first person in history to spacewalk in 1965, has died aged 85.

Tethered to a spaceship by a 4.8m (16ft) cable, the Russian floated above Earth for 12 minutes.

"You just can't comprehend it. Only out there can you feel the greatness - the huge size of all that surrounds us," Leonov told the BBC in 2014.

But the outing nearly ended in disaster as his spacesuit inflated and he struggled to get back in the spaceship.

At a time when the US and the USSR were jostling for space supremacy, Leonov's mission was lauded as a triumph at home.

But Leonov's ambitions did not stop at his spacewalk. He went on to become the commander of Soyuz-Apollo, the first ever joint US-Soviet mission in 1975


The beginning.

Enjoy

Re: Elijah Cummings
The guy was a very passionate speaker. He commanded a room and will leave a very big hole on capital hill. We need more like him.

Re: Elijah Cummings
We have lost a giant.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?
