Crack Is Found in Shuttle's Foam Insulation

Headline in today's New York Times. I formed this image (above) and had a brief chuckle.

I had an even longer laugh when recalling the hysterical Mad TV skit where Debra Wilson (as Whitney Houston), in a mock interview with Diane Sawyer, says the following:
I don't do crack.
cuz crack is cheap
crack is cheap, OK
crack is wack!
I do freebase now.

Oh, life would be so much easier if I could get one of these $450,000 blogger grants from the US Air Force.

“We are developing an automated tool to tell analysts what bloggers are most interested in at a point in time,” Ulicny said.

Has the Air Force not heard of Technorati, MoodViews, Postgenomic or any of the dozens of other sites trying to do the same thing?

If they think they can find terrorists through their blogs, well, I giggle thinking of them reading all those LiveJournals and Xangas.

Perhaps Senator Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) was in charge of awarding the grants:

"I just the other day got, an internet was sent by my staff at 10 o'clock in the morning on Friday and I just got it yesterday. Why?

Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the internet commercially.
. . .

They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a truck.

It's a series of tubes.

And if you don't understand those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and its going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material."
