The Great Space Jack-Off…

When I was twelve years old I wanted nothing more than to be an astronaut. To travel to space, and to see the planet of my birth from a distance. To go boldly where, well…a few had gone before. When the space shuttle first launched into space, in 1981, I hassled my father until he agreed to let me call the international line NASA had set up, so I could hear the transmissions going back and forth between the astronauts and NASA HQ. Despite hearing absolutely nothing of any consequence whatsoever, and despite a phone bill that my father certainly regretted, I was thrilled. It was, in a word, exciting. Yes, when I was twelve. Luckily, since then – I have grown up. Dennis Tito, Mark Shuttleworth, Gregory Olsen, and now Anousheh Ansari. What do they have in common?

Then they interviewed a painter who said something to the effect that the WALL was useless, and another, who while speculating on the meaning of a painting depicting two men in an airplane said (my italics) “maybe they are two Jews going back to Europe.” They also talked to an artist who had moved to New York, and who, in a rather thick, quite un-newyorkian accent, claimed that she had been in NY so long it was now a...

Gibson This…

“Meanwhile, the fuss about Gibson’s outburst has eclipsed less famous prophets, such as the Rev John Hagee. A Texan televangelist, Hagee recently told a meeting of Christian Zionists that the attacks on Lebanon are ‘a miracle of God’.
