For John, BLUF: Is Texas just out looking for businesses and dragging them in? Nothing to see here; just move along.
My Brother Lance forwarded this item from The San Jose Mercury. It is about Mr Elon Musk electing to build his SpaceX Launchpad near Brownsville, Texas, and getting the support of Governor Rick Perry and the State Legislature for the project, which will pump 300 jobs and $85million in capital investment into the local Brownsville economy.
I am happy for Brownsville, but a little sad that we are not in the running for such ventures up here in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Regards — Cliff
SIDE NOTE: Lance made a comment in his EMail about being lost in Brownsville. I wonder if he was with me, back in 1965, trying to track down where Harvey lived. Not THAT Harvey, but someone else.
