Spending priorities

It appears as if the astronauts’ primary focus on their latest mission is to inspect their shuttle for catastrophic damage sustained on liftoff. And given that the outer skin of the space shuttle is more delicate than fine china, I cannot blame them. But it seems to me that the shuttle's time has passed. Surely there are better ways for the taxpayers to spend their borrowed money. Might I suggest some additional spending on faith-based initiatives -- Pug Life Ministries could always use a few extra dollars, for example. The first-ever Ayatollah Mugsy's Youth Indoctrination Camp begins this weekend, and it would be nice if we could afford to feed some of the children. Mr. Treasury Secretary, the PayPal virtual offering plate is to your right.

So what you're saying is you don't think spending $5 Billion dollars to "fix" the shuttle's problems only to have the exact same problems reappear the very next trip is a good investment? Whattya trying to get all logical on us Ayatollah?

I cannot help myself, Joel. Such logical thought was drilled into me during my rigid studies at PetSmart and the madrassa.

The only good thing I can say about the space program is that we may need a way to escape our polluted earth some day soon. Hopefully they will put canines on the rocket instead of humans. Humans will just go somewhere else and mess it up!! Isn't there a dog star somewhere?

I am told that there is a Dog Star, Anonymous One. Pug Lifer Boomer is said to be a fugitive from it.
