article on the (only) two emails that Bill Clinton sent during his presidency. One of them was to Senator John Glenn in space. John Glenn in space! I had completely forgotten that John Glenn rode the shuttle at the age of 77 to study the effects of giving a senator a joyride on NASA's budget. Um, I mean, to study the effects of space flight on old people.
(Glenn had the nerve to complain three years later about the Russians sending a paying tourist to the International Space Station.)
