After seeing the George Washington video
by Brad Neely, I was reminded of a similar video, but can't seem to find it. It was an alligator(ish) guy riding a jet-ski "across the plains," "smiling at the dames," and having some sort of weapon strapped to his hip. The style was so similar I was convinced it was the same guy but am either worthless at searching or wrong. Anyone know what this was?

"The United States is in no sense founded upon the christian doctrine."
is often attributed to George Washington. Where did he say this? Google turns up many unattributed versions of this quotation, but I couldn't find any attribution or source. Anyone able to do better?

The Wife and I will be taking 5 days off in July to see Pearl Jam at The Gorge, just outside of George, WA (ha!). We're trying to book airfare and I'm wondering what's the best way to fly there? Should we fly into SeaTac? Portland? Spokane? We figure we'll have to rent a car no matter what and are fine with the idea of seeing some country. We're flying from Los Angeles (LAX, Burbank, Long Beach and Orange County airports are all an option) and we don't want to have to change planes.
