World to View the
I have a busy weekend planned, so time to actually “blog” will be as elusive as those six special Powerball numbers so close to my heart. To satisfy my personal responsibility to keep something fresh on WoF, here is Boeing's press release about Sunday's blowout party and Dreamliner premiere at Seattle's Qwest Field.
