The deck chairs are in order, Captain Smith.

Did you know that, even as NASA has ended the space shuttle program with no replacement and no real direction for future space policy, we've made it illegal for NASA to enter into cooperative space projects with China? I didn't, either.

It's one thing to mistakenly pursue bad policy on the belief that it's good policy, but I'm really starting to think that our country is deliberately opting for bad policy whenever possible. These are truly amazing times to be alive, and I don't entirely mean that in a good way.

WHAT!!! Why don't we just duck & cover in our basement safe rooms??!!!
What a lousy piece of legislation. We're determined to shoot ourselves in the foot, or, failing that, much higher up.
