    Amazing how space that is uncontrollable is bought and sold by mankind .

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    I'm sure that is not the only sattelite they have - or use. Just drive aroud town and see how may "Direct TV" antennas there are and then notice all the differet azimuth and selevation they are aimed at. Multitudes.

    All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted. . . . . . . . . . . . .. — Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune

    The shuttle broke up on reentry over Nachogdoches in east Texas when my daughter was going to school there. There was a hunt going on for the parts. Some piece busted through the roof of a dentist's office and ended up in the waiting room. They found some of the astronaut's bodies in the woods near the town.
