Tomorrow - January 28, 2006, will make twenty years since the challenger disaster. They been having a lot of things on tv about it. I twas very interesting what was said about, as far as what NASA knew and what the manufacturer of the booster rockets knew. I won't go into details. Only to say that there should be a moment of silence for the people on board ...

Geez... am I really that old? I actually had dinner once with Dick Scobee, commander of the Challenger. I was working with an ad agency that brought him to our town to be grand marshall of an airshow (also met Deke Slayton). He was a really nice, down-to-earth (yes, pun intended) kind of guy. Next to his family, going in space was his greatest love. I cried my eyes out when I first saw it on the news.
