You keep forgetting? It was only Montgomery for a few months. That's like "I keep forgetting they moved the capital from Sitka to Juneau."

And isn't Wright-Patterson there, too?

Yes, sciencyguy, Wright-Patterson AFB is just outside Dayton, right next door to THE National Museum of the Air Force, which was chosen as the best location because DAYTON is the birthplace of aviation; Kitty Hawk and the entire state of North Carolina contributed NOTHING except for soft sands which would've made crashing less harmful. In other words, it was only chosen because it was a more appropriate place to fail!

But I associate the Wright Brothers with Kitty Hawk, which is what I tried.

How is he associated with Dallas at *all*? He was born in Plano (I know that's NEAR Dallas, but isn't the SAME as Dallas), and has lived inAustin for a very long time.

Hooray for Arkansas! Don't be confused by "mountain" next to Pinnacle, because it's barely a thousand feet. However, it has a tree line and a rocky point like a taller mountain would. It's a really pretty part of Arkansas if you're ever in the area.

Why do you cut us off when writing Salt Lake City, yet demand that we type in "city" for Atlantic City?

Salt Lake City can be called "Salt Lake" but no one calls Atlantic City "Atlantic"
