The Declarer (Floyd McWilliams' Blog)

Thursday, February 17, 2011

Valleywag has an 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.)
