astronautical film noir

THE NEWS MEDIA IS IN ORBIT OVER THIS

I happened to stumble on the CBS evening news with Katie Couric and had a good chuckle. I'm talking about the mystified and concerned looks and disbelief that someone so unstable (You see? Guilty in the media before proven so) as Capt. Lisa Nowak could have slipped through the system of checks and balances to become an astronaut. I mean, Don't they check out these people? you kept hearing.

Oh, come on. First of all, to quote one of my idols, Charlie Chan, Man has not been born who can tell what woman will or will not do. Or man for you PC people.

Secondly, I never knew that anyone with a college degree was incapable of alleged attempted murder. Most of you people in the media are smart, educated beyond your intelligence to be accuarte, and you're KILLING me!

Third, ever heard the term Space Cadet Ms. Couric? Surely you have! Often!

Before it's all said and done, poor Capt. Nowak will be seen as a victim of the pressures of the military, NASA, male dominance in the space program, an overbearing and demanding father, dieting, physical training ... you get the picture.

And remember. You heard it here first. Can't wait for the mini-series and the video game.

Oh brother!

Newspaper taxis appear on the shore,
Waiting to take you away.
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds and you're gone.

Lucy in the sky with diamonds,
Lucy in the sky with diamonds,
Lucy in the sky with diamonds.

*Laughs* I agree with you, but you have to admit that this story is "out of this world".... I couldn't resist. =)

You should know! ;-)

Sorry about the house situation. God! Even lower priced homes are outrageous there ... in decent neighborhoods.
