Prolly the cover of either Popular Science (NOT) or the National 
Enquirer. Can you imagine the size of a pizza oven big enough to lightly 
broil a 747? Can you imagine what the same oven would do to a Beech 
1900? That sort of means a papa, mama and baby bear choice of ovens. I 
can just see it now, O'Hare needs to take by eminent (NOT) domain 
another 400 acres for the pizza ovens and their attached nuke plant.
