For unto you is born this day...

These days it is so easy to get lost in the hectic, commercial aspects of the Christmas season that we sometimes lose sight of the true meaning of it all. So on this Christmas Eve, take a moment to stop and remember the greatest gift of all. When I was a child, we would gather around the TV every year to watch "A Charlie Brown Christmas", and Linus would remind us of the reason for the season:

Merry Christmas, everyone.

In Support of Constellation

I know... it's been a while since I posted anything to my blog. Like everyone else, I've made the move to microblogging via Twitter and Facebook.

But I could not resist posting this most excellent video. For those who don't know, President Obama's 2011 budget proposal, which was released on Monday, cancels NASA's Constellation program in favor of a relatively undefined architecture with an undefined mission. Check out that last link for yourself and see what I mean.

The video below points out just how much has already been accomplished on Constellation and how its cancellation could affect thousands of workers all over the country. Please share it around and contact your congressional representatives if you agree with its message.
