Another tragedy: If you haven't heard yet, you've been hiding in a cave, but space shuttle Columbia broke up on re-entry early this morning.
Pray for the astronauts and their families and the United States' space program.
I'm going to go out on a line and do a little prediction -- you won't have to wait until Monday before some conspiracy theorists from the Islamofascist fringe call the shuttle disaster part of a Zionist plot because of the presence of Ilan Ramon, the first Israeli citizen in space.
The people of the world owe a debt of gratitude to Israel and Col. Ramon -- who was reportedly one of the pilots who destroyed the Osirik nuclear reactor in Iraq. While it was roundly criticized at the time, hindsight being 20/20 -- without that action, Saddam Hussein would have had nuclear weapons long ago.
