I opened the latest issue of Extreme Rocketry and I could have sworn
that I had the wrong magazine. I flipped to the interview to find
Peter Alway holding a bunch of little scale rockets. Now, Peter is
one righteous dude, but extreme is not his middle name. I just feel
that this interview would've been better suited for that "other"
publication. And how about that centerfold of a rocket sitting on the
pad? I want to see cool rocket pictures. Any dude can snap still
pictures and blow them up to centerfold size. I want to see amazing
pictures, not something I could have snapped with my circa 1994
disposable. So let's see... Mars Lander on the cover, NSL article,
static centerfold, Peter Alway interview and a how-to article on a
little retro rocket. I miss the days of Frank Kosdon building reloads
with his teeth. Essentially what I'm saying is that I think ER has
lost its mojo.
Can I get an amen?
