Propping Up Myths, on Land and in Space
Surrounded by gratuitous myth-making today. Ruth Mowry's excellent Synchronizing blog has an outstanding entry on the whole UAW-GM strike and hybrid-vehicle problem today, and I would ask everyone to march right over there and consider her questions, maybe even weigh in on something that is weighing on me, for reasons I expressed over there. Meanwhile, the New York Times serves up warmed-over Sputnik signals on the 50th anniversary of the world's first artificial satellite, and rehashes the same Cold War half-lies and crap we've heard since the JFK era. I listed my complaints in "Superficial Spacemen" in my EE Times blog.
