December 17, 1903.

This has to be treated as one of the most significant dates of the 20th century and a red-letter day in all of human history.

The day we mastered powered flight and took to the skies. We haven’t stopped since then.

It seems ironic that this very day, 114-years later, Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, the world’s busiest airplane terminal, was crippled by a power failure as if to remind us how much we now rely on air transport.

They had chosen Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, for its consistent breeze and its forgiving, sandy beaches.

Who was piloting the plane had been determined by a coin toss.

This, as you would demand, has my trademark tight formatting and the well laid out tables.

Given the printing costs this is the cheapest that I can offer it at.

I Have A Pope Interview Published In Slovenia.

This was a neat interview. The interviewer spoke perfect English (much better that I do). He also asked some of the most incisive questions, about the papal transition, that I have been asked in the last 3 weeks. He was good. I was impressed. So, impressed that I invited him over – since he had never been to the U.S. and as do so many, wants, desperately, to visit.

What can I say. I have the material. I know how to do it. When I get my head down, I can get a lot done quickly. So, this is what happens.

‘Pope Names’ is how I broke into the pope scene. I published my ‘Pope Names‘ book in 2008. It was my first foray into what was a totally alien world for me. The book was well received. People started asking me about the possible names for the next pope. That got me doing work on the ‘Next Pope‘ — something that had occupied me for 3 years. So, it is all connected.

I did need to get my ‘Pope Names’ out in electronic form. I had felt guilt that I hadn’t done so earlier. As a bonus, I threw in all my singular research on ‘Peter the Roman’.

Yes, the 2nd Kindle book in 4 days, but this is the last. As Deanna appreciates it keeps me from finding other distractions. In this ebook I included 15 FAQs: the ones most asked of me. Also provide a list of all the ‘officers’ for the 2013 conclave plus their duties. Yes, some of the content is borrowed from ‘The Next Pope 2011‘. As with ‘The Last 9 Conclaves: 1903 to 2005’ the express intent of this ebook is to provide electronic content for those that was reference matter on their Smart Phones or Pads — given that the ‘The Next Pope 2011‘ is not available electronically, and will not be available electronically. I priced it to coincide with the correct sequence number of the new pope: #267; hence U.S. $2.67.
