Book Report City

Not only am I writing a book report of sorts, but my son the 4th Grader has to do two book reports by tomorrow and we've been having a heck of a time getting them out.

The one about his book, Ultimate Aircraft, was really fun because we got to scan in pictures of his three favorite aircraft -- the B-17 Bomber, the Lockheed SR 71 Blackbird stealth plane and the Bell AH-1S Cobra attack helicopter. How can you lose with great pix like that?

I don't think I'll ever get over what it's like to do a book report or science project in elementary school these days, compared to the dark ages (before internet) when I had only the very out-of-date Encyclopedia Brittanica (offline version -- books) to use for research.
