Just wondered whether anyone who was following that former thread, named above, happened to watch "60 Minutes" tonight and saw the Swiss team with the solar powered airplane. It's scheduled to fly around the world in 2015.

Something new, a new invention, from a country a poster here had labelled as a nanny state.Yes...we know they got their funding from capitalists but the possibility to do something new was not stifled, as implied by the former poster.

Also, if you did see "60 minutes" tonight, health care for profit here in the US didn't come out too well, did it? It was scarey how much Medicare fraud is being committed by Big Business. That segment on North Korea was even more shocking and tragic.

Altogether, muckraking journalism as it may be ( in the historical sense of the word) it was one of the best "60 Minutes" we have seen.
