religions but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ".

Timber Biomass offers significant opportunities for
Mississippi’s future. In July 2008,Forbes ranked Mississippi as one of
the top five states for potential biomass energy. The state produces or
has the capability to produce sufficient feed stock for building and
sustaining markets for energy, fuel, and other products. The wood
products industry – over eight million dry tons of it per year –
is the principal source of biomass in the state and currently is being
used to make paper, wood products, mulch, and as a fuel to generate steam and
electricity. Research is ongoing to determine the most efficient use
for biomass produced from municipal solid waste systems, corn grain,
soybeans, poultry litter, and used grease....

This more than anything must explain why the airlines have exhaustively
lobbied for general aviation to pay for the problem of airline hub saturation,
but when NextGen also benefits defense industry corporate pockets it is probably
candy store irresistible to the Bush administration. Why else would we take an
ATC system that offers inherent safety for no additional cost and convert it to
a system that charges more and more for increasing levels of safety? And why
would we use a single system of communication delivery that is prone to solar
anomalies and cosmic debris when we already have a multitude of messaging
systems built across this country offering inherent levels of redundancy? And
finally why hasn’t the FAA already implemented the only user’s fee that makes
sense and enhances air safety –the prime time fee for airlines crowding hubs
with logistically impossible schedules?
