President Obama intends to put Mussulmen into space. Good news! I thought, until I realized he didn’t mean all of them. Instead the plan is to use the space program for "outreach" to "to non-traditional partners". For we live in a time of Progress, and Progress requires NASA abandon its mission of boldly going where no man has gone before to serve, instead, as an orbital ‘Make-A-Wish Foundation’ for backwards countries.
This ridiculousness can‘t be prevented, so we should make the best of it and urge the President to also send a Zambian Afronaut or two.
