The first Israeli astronaut, Ilan Ramon, is having a good time in space. He said Wednesday from shuttle Columbia that he wishes his homeland — in fact, all of the Middle East — were as quiet and peaceful as it looks from space.
"The world looks marvelous from up here, so peaceful, so wonderful and so fragile."
Great. Maybe they should send up Ariel Sharon next time.

I think George and Arafat should join him up there.  


30 Jan 2003 @ 07:29 by jstarrs : Now there's an idea...
...for our politicians!!  


30 Jan 2003 @ 14:50 by ming : Politicians in space
Yeah, how about they all had to run their governments from up there. From the same space station, preferably, with big windows down to the earth below.  


30 Jan 2003 @ 21:42 by ashanti : Hehehe!
I LOVE it! I remember in one of Douglas Adams' novels, a bunch of people came up with a similar idea to get rid of their troublesome politicians, bureacrats, and other fun-spoilers - ship 'em all off to another planet......

What did that poor planet do?  


21 Feb 2003 @ 14:28 by maxtobin : Maybe that would have been the Answer
Hind sight wisdom and the breakup of Columbia over the Texas town of Palistine would possibly have given us all a new start if those esteemed folk had been included in the crew and not the unfortunate ones who perished.
