This is astounding. Almost a month after Hurricane Ike, and 300 people are still missing. Not only that, right until this Friday there have been persistent reports of gas shortages across the American SouthEast due to the summer's busy hurricane season. The Decline of the American Empire, indeed.
This too is astounding, but in a good kind of way. The next step in space exploration is the commercialization of space flight. The fact that a private company with only about 500 employees managed to successfully lob a rocket into orbit ought to be front page news. Too bad about all these silly elections and stupid economic meltdown.
