The Corner

Thanks!

I’ve gotten a lot of nice feedback from viewers of my 3 hour C-Span interview today. Thanks also to all the folks at C-Span who couldn’t have been more pleasant and professional.

Anyway for those who missed it because they wanted to watch football or enjoy the pretty weather instead of subjecting themselves to 3 hours of C-Span wonkery, it’s on again tonight at Midnight eastern time.

Full repeat schedule here.

Its plan would nix all government funding for the ISS by 2025 and award at least $150 million per year to NASA to help with the transition. This would be a ... Read More
