Steve York lays the smack down on Buzz Aldrin for blaming science fiction for the decline of interest in the space program — Um…earth to Buzz?

Exploring Titan by blimp — Ok, excuse my while cool-o-meter spazzes out. It’s Space 1889 come to life! (Except with fewer Belgians.)

The law of diminishing returns in late-life healthcare — This article struck a bit close to home, given my recent experiences with cancer.

Cell-phone sniffing dogs — Can I have one that can find the car keys?

The week that should have ended McCain’s presidential hopes — Or, “Your Liberal Media Inaction.” (Thanks to lt260.)
