Seriously, New York????

Before I start my rant....I want to apologize for just disappearing.  I have a lengthy explanation, and am working on that post, but to simply state it....I was in sin, and just didn't feel like posting.  I'm sorry for letting so many people down.  I will post about it later, but I'm not finished with that post yet.  I would appreciate prayers-it's a delicate and difficult situation, but I have always tried to be honest with you, and I won't change that now.

Seriously, New York?

You may wonder what in the world I'm even referring to.  I'm ranting about NY getting one of the space shuttles.  GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!

Living in TX most of my life, Houston none-the-less, This is a tremendous blow to the city and state.  I can understand FL, CA, and WDC getting a shuttle, but NY?  Yes, I know it's all political....yeah, like they are going to score points with me....but come on, did we hear the astronaunts say, "New York, the Eagle has landed?"  or did we hear on Apollo 13 did they say, "New York, we have a problem?" 


Houston has been served a HUGE injustice again.  sigh....I could really get on a soap box here....the Astros and Bud Selig, the Summer Olympics....just to name a few....but seriously....NY?  

What on earth other than politics could anyone be thinking?  NASA's heart and soul is the Houston area, and has been from practically day one.  

For over 30 years, men and women have given their all to the space program, moving their families to Houston to train, study, etc.  Several contracting companies have been associated with NASA and the Space program. 

When the Shuttle exploded in 1986, President Regan came to Houston.  Why?  Because most of the Astronaunts that died were living in Houston at the time. 

I am SO disappointed and angry by this decision.

God Bless the men and women that have sacrificed their lives, time, and energy in our Space program and made Houston the great city it is.  Thank you for all you have done over the years.  Maybe you didn't get the shuttle, but your hard work and determination hasn't gone unnoticed by everyone. 

(BTW....this was on my FB AFTER I posted this blog post, so I came and added it on.)
Will you consider signing a petition?

Blessings until next time.
