I am 85 years old this year so there is only a slim possibility that I will be around when in 2030 a new giant telescope that is five times the size of the Hubble telescope is swung into action. However, I was alive today to see pictures from Pluto. Gee, Pluto has mountains, gee, Pluto has a smooth surface. Sorry,there is absolutely no sign of any form of life on this planet. Pluto is at the end of our galaxy and soon will be heading past our minor point in the universe on its way toward the stars.
I believe we Americans made a horrible mistake in giving up further exploration of the Moon. After the fifteen or sixteen or God knows how many Republican candidates leave the stage, the real human drama will continue as we take the first hesitant steps on the voyage that must be taken-venturing into the unknown. I hate to inform Republicans but if there really is a God, that entity is somewhere in the stars.
Heck,all this science stuff gives Republicans a headache.

I encountered Bill Cosby while in my thirties and never regarded him as a classic comic. He had his “bit,” and it was popular for many years. Then he went into television and portrayed the humorous, but loving father who was always ready to utter some wise words of advice. Unfortunately, Bill Cosby never got around to listening to the advice he handed out to his television children. There now is no question that Bill was a predator who abused women. He used his popularity, his fame as the wise decent man on the Cosby show to entice women into his bed, along with a few drugs.
President Obama at his press conference sort of summed up the Cosby epic. “If you give a woman, or a man for that matter, without his or her knowledge– a drug and then have sex with that person without consent, that’s rape.” Period!
