One of the two toilets on the international space station broke down on Sunday (with more astronauts than ever before — 13 in all — aboard). A Belgian and an American bravely suited up in goggles, masks, and gloves to attempt the repairs.
By Asher Embry
Just one toilet remains.
“Rocket scientist” brains
Now are forced to repair
That important spot where
Everyone in the place
Does their business in space.
A crowd of 13’s all it takes;
And, sure enough, the toilet breaks.
And as everyone knows,
When the head overflows
Best just put up a sign
And get set for a line.
Things have sure gotten rough
Just to show “The Right Stuff.”
It’s “one small step for man”
When repairing the can.
But it’s really a hero
(When gravity’s zero)
Who puts tight goggles on
And tries fixing the john.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
