…wants to emulate SpaceX. I take this much more seriously than anything the Chinese government claims to plan.
Roger Simon says they shoud stay, but never vote.
I had a slightly different take on it several years ago. The vote should be a privilege to be earned, not automatically granted.
There was a panel discussion at the Mars Society Convention Friday night in Irvine. Bob invited me to participate, but I was unfortunately in Florida, preparing for the storm.
It, and the Wilson administration, was the beginning of the end of the Republic. I would love (at a minimum) to repeal both the 16th and 17 Amendments.
Jonathan Turley: The White House is right about Comey’s potential criminality.
Whatever respect I’d ever harbored for Comey has evaporated over the past year and a half.
I agree. Better late than never.
An email I missed from Alex when I was on the plane Tuesday:
As you have probably heard, my father, Jerry, passed away on Friday, September 8, 2017. He had attended DragonCon as a guest, was lauded by thousands, and had a tremendously good time. As an author, it would be difficult to think of a better way to be sent off.
Our family also appreciates the outpouring of memorials and reminiscences, both public and private, which have followed.
The public service will be this Saturday, September 16:
12N PT: Services at St. Francis de Sales Church, 13368 Valleyheart Drive Sherman Oaks, CA 91423
We will be working to livestream the service as well.
Please let those who should know about the service. If you will be in town, we hope to see you there.
I’ll be going, hope to see a lot of old (in both senses of the word) friends.
Just got back from a lovely service. pic.twitter.com/NN03CJrsmS

New emails reveal that she mishandled classified information much more than we previously knew.
This is my shocked face.
[Update mid morning]
As I’ve noted before, the Democrats’ tolerance of the Clinton’s corruption was the final straw for me with them in the 90s. And it continues.
So Trump called him an idiot, and told him to quit? Well, he is, and he should. But why does he still have his job? For someone who became famous in part for publicly firing people, Trump sure seems to have a hard time actually doing it.
[Update a couple minutes later]
Speaking of idiots, Joe Biden is saying that people who support due process under the law are just like Nazis. Right.
Boeing and Lockmart seem to be getting their money’s worth for their campaign donations to him. But while he’s clearly a tool, he’s never been the sharpest one in the shed. As Eric notes, the irony is that, prior to SpaceX, it was ULA had an actual monopoly on Air Force launches.
