Images from Discovery

We all cheered Tuesday when NASA's Discovery successfully lifted off. Thank God for the great weather which made the trip possible. Of course, "great weather" in this context only means "great" for lizards, ice melting conventions and of course the above-mentioned space shuttle lift-off. As for the rest of us, (even those who complain about over ambitious users of air conditioning) are sweating like a 6,000 pound man on a 5K run.

But we digress. The grand view of the Earth from space, which on prior shuttle launches was almost totally blotted out by a certain person's [you know who you are] mom's cushion, was this time, entirely invisible due to blockage from Jane Fonda's giant collar. (This has also hindered solar power uses by 75% in the past three months.) NASA is hoping for cooperation from both parties but holds little hope for Jane Fonda who has mysteriously worn her collar in a "Fonzi" style since the 80's.
