Richard Pryor once said that he was glad he was a black guy because white guys had to go to the moon! JFK didn’t want to piss off his southern white voters who had voted democrat for almost 100 years. He didn’t send woman to the moon either but then JFK had other plans for some of the ladies on earth.
Once again we find ourselves in another moonshot competition but this time with the Chinese instead of with the Soviet Union. The only thing we have to show for spending a bazillion dollars on this is Tang and the worlds most expensive rock collection! Been there done that!
And that is all I’m going to say about that!
