In The News: Heading into the holiday weekend... That's what president Obama is doing with a trip to Camp David, and then back to Washington where he'll do a 'welcome back to school' message for US school children which the conservative talk show creepazoids think of as an attempt to brainwash the youth of America into being 'Socialist tools. (Hmmm... I don't see where the problem is?)

The White House has called a joint session of congress this coming Wednesday regarding the Heath Care bill, and what the president is expecting to see in it if the congresscritters want his signature.

The Space Shuttle Discovery and the International Space Station MAY have to move... There's a piece of space junk expected to pass within 7 miles of their location and if it veers closer they'll find another piece of space to inhabit.

Here's what The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy says about 'space': "Space," it says, "is big."
Really big.

You just won't believe how vastly hugely mindboggingly big it is.

I mean you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space. Listen ..." and so on.

(After a while the style settles down a bit and it begins to tell you things you really need to know, like the fact that the fabulously beautiful planet Bethselamin is now so worried about the cumulative erosion by ten billion visiting tourists a year that any net imbalance between the amount you eat and the amount you excrete whilst on the planet is surgically removed from your bodyweight when you leave: so every time you go to the lavatory it is vitally important to get a receipt.)

To be fair though, when confronted by the sheer enormity of distances between the stars, better minds than the one responsible for the Guide's introduction have faltered. Some invite you to consider for a moment a peanut in reading and a small walnut in Johannesburg, and other such dizzying concepts. The simple truth is that interstellar distances will not fit into the human imagination.

Even light, which travels so fast that it takes most races thousands of years to realize that it travels at all, takes time to journey between the stars. It takes eight minutes from the star Sol to the place where the Earth used to be, and four years more to arrive at Sol's nearest stellar neighbour, Alpha Proxima. For light to reach the other side of the Galaxy, for it to reach Damogran for instance, takes rather longer: five hundred thousand years.

The record for hitch hiking this distance is just under five years, but you don't get to see much on the way. [Source, Wikipedia]

The State Department has a team on the ground in Kabul checking reports ("Fire Control" if you would) and video of an initiation party for contractors (ArmourGroup) with supervisors present. The parties had alcohol, which is forbidden, and perversely weird sexual overtones. "Secretary of State Clinton has ordered the inquiry into allegations of "deviant and lewd behaviour"


The Los Angeles fires are 30 percent contained but the Station fire is liable to burn for a couple more weeks. which WILL help burn off fuels that could be problems later.
