Potpourri LVI

Yikes! Major Metro wreck on the Red Line in DC.

Woo hoo! The launch video segment of this show was written by and visually conceived by yours truly (i.e., I storyboarded the camera shots, and the graphics people actually made them happen). The show borrowed the video from the Ares I-X site. The guy pretty much borrows my stuff word for word. Nice to see my work get out there, one way or another. I'm stealthy that way.

Klingon kradles for your kiddies. No, really. Not exactly OSHA approved.

An unexpected side-effect of the GM bankruptcy is that the Test Track attraction at Epcot is now without a sponsor. Never mind the loss of jobs or the waste of billions of taxpayer dollars or the fact that the government is socializing the American auto industry--this is important stuff!!!

Darlene the Science Cheerleader has a link to online lectures from top scientists. Worth checking out, if only to get yourself off Facebook!

New from Hu. This really requires no further comment: NASA moon bombing violates space law & may cause conflict with lunar ET/UFO civilizations...

This appeared in Newsweek, of all places (not exactly Obama enemies). Their blog is reporting that the Administration is not honoring its pledge for "openness," one of their constant critiques of the Bush administration.

I'm shocked, shocked...

From Father Dan, a YouTube video on a lawsuit to tear down a veterans' memorial cross in the middle of the Mojave Desert. The advocacy site for this issue can be found here. Welcome to the United States of the Offended.

Also from Father, a living cartoon. Enjoy.

New Mexico's spaceport had its official grand opening. I've driven through that particular expanse of nothing, north of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. The fact that the spaceport guys managed to convince the locals to raise their own taxes to build this thing is astonishing to me, but a hopeful sign if it works.

Oh, good grief...another sci-fi series might get a reboot: Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. The Bart Hand is about to be raised in the meeting so I can ask, "Is this really necessary?"
