Let's just say that I've had it 'up to here' with insurance companies and their ridiculous rules. And I don't get the ultimate pleasure of dealing with it every day!

OK, sorry, side-tracking I know, but I'm still thinking about the "Dragonrider Academy" idea. I like it. A school would definitely improve the quality of the whole deal. Why didn't anyone think of this before? Or did someone? Did Weyrleader Sean try to make a standardized training academy in DD?

I am writing a story (and I know that I keep saying that, but it's not a fib!), and a lot of it focuses on training-because darn it, the girl has to learn to fly somehow, doesn't she? So, this interests me. . . maybe I should send 'em to school.
