Angry, Sad, Frustrated.. I’m sad for the seven who died in the Columbia. For their families. For everyone who is hurting at NASA.
I’m frustrated that this space bus crashed on a routine neighborhood mission. It’s like the tires coming off on the freeway.
I’m angry that congressmen for the last 30 years haven’t fully funded space exploration. The Columbia should have been bringing back tourists from the moon, settlers from Mars. And this wouldn’t have been the 28th mission but the 1000th.
I’m angry that I feel so strongly for the few, to the point of tears, but not for the millions who will die this year of AIDS, hunger, and war.

Well said. So true.
