Another seven deaths in Palestine

I know I should have something grand and relevant to say about the space shuttle disaster, but I don't.

I'm no fan of NASA. I've never been particularly enthralled with space travel. And even in the heady days of the early '80s, when we were being told every day how America could do anything, I never really was that fascinated by the space shuttle.

In the end, all I can do is say that it saddens me that seven people died, and hope that this wasn't (as the last one was: even more than the image of the explosion, the image of Richard Feynman's simple, breathtaking, damning experiment at the hearings stays with me) the result of greed, ego and stubbornness.
