I'm not really an airplane guy, so I've only had a limited amount of exposure to these warplanes. It was great to be able to walk among them, and to visit the other interspersed displays.
I particularly enjoyed the "Doolittle Raid" exhibit.
War is the worst thing, but I wish I could have been around to see the frantic innovation and construction of the early 1940s. I think maybe my mind would have thrived in that environment.

In the restroom, I was again reminded that I was not in California.
This poster was printed in only one language: English.
On Sunday morning, we were back at Super Target, taking secret photographs.
I tried to capture the total number of cash registers in this photo. I think there were 26.
Also, I noticed that Emily had a Barbie doll with fiber optic wings.
Regular Cockeyed.com readers may remember that my three fiber optic experiments were designed with the goal of making a giant pair of awesome fiber optic wings.
Yeah, it was a neat effect, but it definitely cooled my fiber optic costume plans.
Who wants to copy a Barbie doll?
In Omaha, Stacy and I couldn't help but notice that home prices were considerably lower than in California.
Four bedroom homes sold for $190,000, contributing to our belief that Omaha homes were valued at about 38% of their California counterparts.
On Sunday afternoon, Stacy and I took a drive looking for an interesting place to eat dinner. We settled for Chili's, where we heard that Nebraska had unfortunately lost the football game.
I noticed that some of the intersections were spanned by ultra-long diagonally-running traffic light catwalks. The sheer length of this beam amazed me, never mind the phalanx of cameras poking up above the lights.
Please read page 8 of Omaha is not in California.
