Hi folks,
The Cork room should only be preserved if it is of interest to the general public and with no pictures to see of the present state of the room or of the cost of restoring it, trying to figure out if it is worth saving is difficult.
If you want to see more on modern airships, past, present and future see: or if you just want a helium sniffing laugh try the worlds only lighter than air comedy site, with lots of funny pictures and U tube links fit for all the family.
Regards Bond, James Bond.

Historical preservation decisions should not be based on what is of interest to the general public.

For those who feel it is of great value, please feel free to spend your own dough to save it. No one is going to stop you.

Shouldn't Ms. Eshoo be concerned with more important matters?

I wonder if she is disturbed by the 1,500,000,000,000 dollar per year deficit?
