Re: Sahara review
I, too, was at the Preview Showing in Walnut Creek. Actually, I was
one of the organizers of the event. I do not know if the author of
this review remembers me, but I did tell him, that although I was
avid reader, I was not a Clive Cussler Book "person".
I must agree that Mr. babaoriely767's review of the movie is right
on the money, from an overall perspective. However, since I have
not read the book, I can not attest to the purity of the script.
It was definitely action packed.
I plan to get a couple of Mr.Cussler's works and join you folks.

- Well, commercial fishermen long line for halibut. They don't swim in
schools they are bottom fish related to flounder. It might be better to
think of them as giant flounder because we catch them anywhere from 50 to
378 lbs each. The best one might do is hit a chick hole. Chicks are
considered 20lbs and under. Most the fishermen I know want to know where to
find those schooling halibut because halibut pay $6.00 a pound.
