I thought I was nuts as I remember this same story being printed a while back. Why a repeat????
Mauna Kea is an island, and if the distance from the bottom of the nearby Pacific Ocean floor to the peak of the island is measured, then Mauna Kea is “taller” than Mount Everest. Mauna Kea is over 10,000 meters tall compared to 8,850 meters for Mount Everest – making it the “world’s tallest mountain.” Mt. Everest is the highest in altitude, but NOT the tallest. Check it out on Google.
Well said, Pab. My wife and I were married in a castle near Edinburgh on 9/11/16. We had picked the day months in advance and anxiously awaited that day when we would become man and wife. After our wedding, staff came to us solemnly and informed us of what had just happened in New York, Washington DC, and a field in Pennsylvania. Both of us had chosen law enforcement as our careers and watched as many of our brethren in blue, both police officers and firefighters, along side of so many innocent civilians, had their lives crushed out. Today is our fifteenth wedding anniversary and as we have done every September 11th, we do not celebrate our anniversary in any way . . . i am sure we never will. Instead, we remember those that were lost, something neither of us can forget.
So True! I loved this strip so much that I cut each one out of the Rocky Mountain News and taped them to sheets of paper and put them in a 3-ring binder to go over them later when I needed a good look on how life can be! So glad to see it coming back!
