Power To The People
I got it back last night. I wrote the Town Supervisor and the Governor.
But the LIRR trains are still a mess. Wednesday, I had a three-hour commute. My train was short two cars and packed.

An Engineer's Guide To The Galaxy
After noodling around about the density of neutron stars, or pulsars, I took it to the other extreme and wondered whether the density of a black hole was more or less than a proton? That is when I found this article, and shockingly learned that the density of a proton is about the same as that required to form a black hole, 4E19 kg/m^3.
So, I hypothesize that a black hole must be nothing but a bunch of mushed together protons (or neutrons).
Next I wonder about whether the gravitational force attracting together protons and neutrons in an alpha particle is great enough when they are touching to overcome the repulsive Coulomb force of the protons?
