Elihu Yale is buried here.

There are 20,000 engineers in the Huntsville-Metro area, the most in the US. Back in the early 2000s Huntsville held the most cellphones per capita as well as largest number of PhDs per capita.

Back in the 92 BRAC I was headed for MICOM and excited about it. My wife said "I'm not moving to Alabama." "Huntsville's only in Alabama on paper." "We're not moving to Alabama fatboy."

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?
