Good show, again, Howard....We find the same experience here in Califrnia...
Birds that they can hold a converstion on really get their attention.  I've 
talked to almost every shuttle that was ever launched throughout the years, 
had kids of all ages here at various times, and those contacts were 
interesting to them, but pretty much of a "ho hum" attitude.  BUT, when 
they can pick up the mike, hear themselves, and then when they get someone 
to answer....the WOW! needs no explanation to those that have experienced it!!
