Living in Pensacola has its benefits. Like hearing the bomb blasts from about 50 miles away at the Eglin Air Force base testing and practicing range. Which brings me to my wish list for Santa. I’d like Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to get one of these. It’s called a Massive Ordnance Air Blast. It has also been affectionately called the Mother Of All Bombs.
Thanks to the Northwest Florida Daily News for a fine article.
