At about 10:00 PM my time, 45 years ago today, men from Earth stepped onto the surface of the moon for the very first time.

Thanks to the shortsightedness and craven nature of bureaucrats and elected officials from that day to this, "men without chests" in the words of C. S. Lewis, we cannot celebrate that anniversary on-site. In fact, the only nation that has ever been able to go to the moon can't even leave our planet's gravity well without buying a ticket from the people whose behinds we kicked in the race to get there.

I shall be surly for awhile now.
