Interesting info, lots of fluff on the right side of the page.
Oh! Yeah, nice photo.

4000 square feet? Cripes, you could put my whole house in there 3 times, with room left over!

Agreed... the righthand column is a trifle suspect

Here is a short vid about the tickets
Pop Up Video (http://www.kpax.com/global/video/flash/popupplayer.asp?ClipID1=4041459&h1=800%20people%20 get%20tickets%20to%20see%20Obama&vt1=v&at1=Station - broken link) 7&d1=52034&LaunchPageAdTag=Station 7&activePane=info&rnd=42542492

Annoying commercial at the beginning but it is rather short.

Will be interesting to hear what folks have to say... seems the health care package's unpopularity has led to some rude but understandable protests elsewhere. Turns out the health insurance industry actually has one of the lower profit margins, and makes it up on volume. So what's really going on, hmmm??

Anyway, I hope Montanans can get their points across without acting like rude city folk

IMO one of the giant contributing factors is the fear of litigation, which causes overlapping of services, tort reform is all we need I think, and remember that they are only doctors, not the almighty!

That's true -- I've read that in some specialties, over 90% of costs are for malpractice insurance!!

KPAX's damned video stream locks out anyone not using the current Windows Media Player, which is BS because there are a lot of other players that will do the job (including VLC which I normally use -- current WMP won't run on this machine). So I guess I won't be watching THAT way...

Hey I got a look at it from the Great Falls station. We get NO DAK better than most Montana feeds here.
He looks well, kids looked board as most kids do. They landed before the rain started.
The folks in the hanger were polite. The news station did not spend any time showing any protesters. Some relevant questions, not too much gushing. I wonder about the the photo op folks behind him. Not a one who looked like a rancher or farmer?
He talks a good game, he talks in circles, the true lawyer that he is.
Happy that they made it safe and sound. Watching the SS guys/gals is always fun, they look very stressed all the time.
AF One was quite beautiful landing against the backdrop, majestic.

A long time ago I moved a MASH unit off one. It was when we were changing over from tents to inflatables.
Ok, just dated myself!
That's a C-17 I believe. It carries the helos. I heard that a C-5 landed also, but didn't see it.

I saw 3 CH52's and the 2 presidential helos, the 2 presidential helos are new so I'm not sure what type they are.

I watched AF1 come in from my in-laws place on the N side of the airport. Pretty cool. You don't see Air Force 1 out of your living room window every day!
