I don't think you'll need so much cross bracing - the paper wing surface should act as a monococque to keep the ribs from moving.
He's got 100,000 reputation points on StackOverflow - that's more valuable than any old "MVP" title.
Moller eat your heart out
Moller has been faffing around for 25+ years promising something like this "any day now" and producing nothing except dubious stock certificates. These guys are going to make it work, and do it in 1/10th the time with 1/10th the hype.
Robert Scott, hypocrite
First you say that "Let's try to elevate the debate", and then you accuse Clinton of rapes. Show me the court dockets where Clinton was tried and convicted of rape, because in this country you're innocent until found guilty. Then you say "You never heard us saying that we hoped for Clinton to die or be arrested or anything like that", and yet Jesse Helms once said that if Clinton visited an army base in South Carolina, he'd better bring extra security because the soldiers there would kill him. In my book, that's disrepectful of the office of Commander in Chief, as well as being disrepectful of ordinary soliders who (unlike Jesse Helms) are not an undisciplined rabble who think that killing somebody they disagree with is a normal thing.
Speaking of "elevate the debate", your good buddy Rush Limbaugh once referred to Chelsea Clinton as "the White House dog" and chortled to himself at his great wit. If he'd said that about my daughter, I would have dragged him from his studio and horsewhipped him in the street. I think Clinton showed great restraint.
You missed the best part:

Officials at the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, which owns the plant, say they get the humorous intent. But they note that the plant is an award-winning facility that keeps the city's streets and the ocean clean.
"If you are looking for a place to make a negative statement about the Bush administration's impact on the environment, this would be the last place to do it," agency spokesman Tony Winnicker said.
As a friend says, that seems like the City is saying that they don't want to rename the sewage treatment plant after Bush on the grounds that it would be an insult to the sewage.
