I strive to keep Space Thoughts on substantive topics, but I will digress for this occasion. Jeff Burney, who is a Freelance editorial cartoonist and illustrator in Ottawa, Canada created an editorial comic illustrating Senator John McCain’s fight against the RD-180 rocket engine. I do have respect for Senator McCain, and this cartoon does not attempt to denigrate that respect. However, I do disagree with him strongly on this issue, and a picture in this case is worth a thousand words.
Thanks to Jeff for bringing this to my attention and allowing me to post it on Space Thoughts. You can check out Jeff’s site here: http://jeffburney.blogspot.ca/
