"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

Good uses for your Bush tax-cut!

How about a second personalized space flight? Yes, that's right. A second flight to the International Space Station as a tourist.
American billionaire Charles Simonyi, a computer software executive who paid more than $20 million to fly to the International Space Station aboard a Russian-built Soyuz capsule in spring 2007, will train for a second Soyuz trip to the space station in spring 2009.
I'm so glad that Mr. Simonyi found something more extravagant than another yacht or another mansion to splurge on. Meanwhile, back here on Earth, people are dealing with real problems.

Enjoy your flight, Mr. Simonyi! We'll be right here when you get back. You can read more about this narcissistic tool on his own little website, charlesinspace.com.
