In the Overnight Mail

There's this to begin with...

That's pretty clever.  Remember back in the '70s when "scientists" were warning us of a new impending Ice Age?  Well, so much for that.  We're all gonna drown now.

I don't have any gratuitous plane pr0n today, so how about some gratuitous rocket porn?

A United Launch Alliance Atlas V launch vehicle lifts off with the National Reconnaissance Office's NROL-67 payload. This was the 45th Atlas V launch since the inaugural flight in 2002.
The launch took place yesterday at Cape Canaveral AFS.

In other news... It's yet another late start, what with us pouring our first cup around 1215 hrs.  Our day was half-over before it even started.


  1. Don't get Pepper started on the climate change kerfuffle. Cool rocket launch!

    1. There are more than a few of us who get our knickers in a twist over "climate change."

  2. Yeah, I'm just old enough to remember the 'New Ice Age' angst of the 70s. When it didn't happen, I think some of the same people figured that must be 'cuz of Global Warming. . .

    And the Atlas is cool (at first I figured it was launching from some desert locale, but then, I've been to Canaveral, and they got sand there, too). . .

    1. I think today's climate change hoopla exceeds the New Ice Age BS by at least an order o' magnitude. One wonders about all that grant money coming out of Washington...


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
