  1. I’ve been to Detroit. It was thirty years ago, and, even then, the vultures would have been an improvement.

  2. Well duh! When A=air and S=speed and V=velocity it is easy to compute. V = S/A and S = AV. Of course, it is muddied by H which is both humidity and headwind and one of them must be squared. Science!
