The Space Review: The feminization of American space policy (page 1)
Now this is an interesting look at the changes in the language used to express American Space Policy. Couple that with this story from Space.com called NASA's Fear of Flying: What if the Shuttle Never Flies Again.
Another Terrorist Gone
Killing Terrorists is not a bad thing. And killing terrorist leaders like Rantisi is even better.

Commentary - The Intelligence Mess: How It Happened, What to Do About It
It is seldom that print hard copies of articles. I mean, that's what blogs are for, for goodness sake. This piece is a notable exception. Worth reading.
Air Amerika: Off The Air
My favorite part of this story is the John Kerry campaign ad running in the middle. These folks are on your side, Senator.

A fun little program. Just plug in your data, and it tells you what happens when an asteroid hits. Space.com has a great explanation of the program.

An Alternative History
Do Not Skim Past This Post.
Haven't found anything this profound in a long, long time.
A look at what might have been had Bush done what so many are accusing him of not doing.
By Greg Easterbrook.
Here's the beginning:
AN ALTERNATIVE HISTORY: washington, april 9, 2004. A hush fell over the city as George W. Bush today became the first president of the United States ever to be removed from office by impeachment. Meeting late into the night, the Senate unanimously voted to convict Bush following a trial on his bill of impeachment from the House.

Moments after being sworn in as the 44th president, Dick Cheney said that disgraced former national security adviser Condoleezza Rice would be turned over to the Hague for trial in the International Court of Justice as a war criminal. Cheney said Washington would "firmly resist" international demands that Bush be extradited for prosecution as well.

Well, have you clicked on the link to read the whole thing yet? Why the heck not?!?!?

NBC Trumps Rice With Anti-Bush Widows -- 04/08/2004 - Media Research Center - Media Reality Check
An analysis of some of the coverage from MSNBC. Interesting the 911 families that weren't asked to be on the shows.
Victor Davis Hanson on War on Terror on National Review Online
Here's the last 3 paragraphs:
So let us get a grip. Bush yet again must remind the American people that we are at war not merely in the Sunni Triangle or in the Afghan badlands, but rather globally and for the liberal values of Western civilization. There is no mythical pipeline in Afghanistan; Halliburton executives are not lounging around the pool in Baghdad chomping on cigars and quaffing cocktails; and in this age of sky-high gas prices there is no sinister cabal that has hijacked Iraq oil. Sharon is not getting daily intelligence briefings about Iraq. The war is what it always was — a terrible struggle against an evil and determined enemy, a Minotaur of sorts that harvested Americans in increments for decades before mass murdering 3,000 more on September 11.

Everything that the world holds dear — the free exchange of ideas, the security of congregating and traveling safely, the long struggle for tolerance of differing ideas and religions, the promise of equality between the sexes and ethnic groups, and the very trust that lies at the heart of all global economic relationships — all this and more Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, and the adherents of fascism in the Middle East have sought to destroy: some as killers themselves, others providing the money, sanctuary, and spiritual support.

We did not ask for this war, but it came. In our time and according to our station, it is now our duty to end it. And that resolution will not come from recrimination in time of war, nor promises to let fundamentalists and their autocratic sponsors alone, but only through the military defeat and subsequent humiliation of their cause. So let us cease the hysterics, make the needed sacrifices, and allow our military the resources, money, and support with which it most surely will destroy the guilty and give hope at last to the innocent.

The whole editorial is worth reading, as is most everything from Victor Davis Hanson.

AirAmerika: A Review of the first few days:

Well, I've had some time to listen to the new Liberal Talk Radio network.
The local Chicago station is 950 am.
A little staticky, difficult to keep tuned in at times. Very weak compared to other talk stations in the Chicago metro area.

Oh, and the station doesn't have very good reception either.

At this time, they are more of a bad satire of Conservative Radio, beginning with their "Morning Sedition," and continuing through Al Franken's attempt at matching Rush Limbaugh.

And believe it or not, I'm rooting for them to survive. Opposition voices are important. It's the reason Conservatives moved to AM Radio in the first place.

To survive, they must develop their own voice, rather than ripping off the styles of an already successful genre.

It's not enough to just stand there and say, "Nuh-uh!" to everything that comes from President Bush or the Republicans. They must have their own ideas to present as well. At least so far, that hasn't happened.
