    Yep, saw a video on Yahoo about this a few minutes ago.

    Wonder if they'll be heading a little farther out in the country to do their artillery tests from now on!

    Thanks for the heads up Bill. I hope common sense prevails at Discovery and they dont get carried away cancelling the show. Stuff happens.
