The space shuttle Columbia is gone, broke up on re-entry this morning. Chris's response was that it's like the 80s all over again and I look around me to see how true it is. Not only the mourning of the loss of the spacecraft and those aboard, but the Republican controlled government, the threat of nukes being loosed on the world, and let's not forget tax cuts of the rich and the so-called desperate need for a missile defense program (back in the day it was known as Star Wars, and twenty years of development hasn't made it any more effective).

At least the Columbia wasn't being broadcast live into the classrooms of small children when it blew. Small miracles.
