Down time

I'd laugh, but this isn't funny. Isn't it time to put NASA down like a senile coon dog yet?

No humour please, we're Canadian liberals. Punch line for those of you in a hurry:
That's right. She wrote two full paragraphs referencing global warming and evolution to critique a post designed to draw attention to the falling values of newspaper stocks.
Indeed.

Been spending the day hanging out in my room, playing Civ 3 and reading Tom Wolfe's Hooking Up. There's a lot of food for thought in there, but there usually is with Wolfe. I can't help wondering whether there's anyone else looking at American society with the same detached amusement and painstaking eye for detail when it comes to our foibles and follies. Anyway, I plan to do a whole lot of nothing this evening. There'll be time enough tomorrow for running around and removing still more things from the apartment.

No. It's time to properly fund NASA, and to understand that there will be risks of life and limb, and grow a pair.

I agree with all of what you said except the first part. NASA did good work in the 1960s and 1970s when the Space Race with the Soviets was on, but since then they've been just another Federal bureaucracy. I think it's time for them to get out of the way and let private companies explore & exploit he high frontier.
