In light of the up-coming elections, only two and a half months away (hang in the Glenn!!) I thought this would be a good way for everyone to get to know eachother a little better, especially our brethren that are not able to join us as often as we would all like. I swiped the idea and the questions from the Omega Wing! It was fun to get to know the other Pilots, so I thought we could use it too. Just copy and paste this into your post and answer them...don't be shy!
