Maybe even tie up a whole telecon line! Actually, I’m worried he’s killed the person he pointed his gun at...

Hate to be the one to tell you this, Sheila Jackson Lee, but the shuttle is in Florida

Well, I hope a stray bullet doesn't hit one of the Mars rocks!

Kalifornicate is NOT a shall issue state — in fact, only Politicians, LEOs and folks with “special” circumstances can get a permit to carry...

However, LOTS of folks who would rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6 are carrying in Kalifornicate....

I have to believe the same is true - or will SOON be true throughout the nation - given the state to which public safety and the justice system have deteriorated..

Semper Fi

I’m such an airhead. I’m thinking Ilya Kuryakin was that American guy who went up in space a couple weeks ago thru Russia. Then I remembered his name is Charles. He’s returning to earth tomorrow... sigh.

"Wonder why the bomb squad is there."

It's not a bomb-free zone?

That's obviously the problem, then. We need legislation to make it a bomb-free zone!

Yep, it’s a gun free zone, except for the criminals who disobey the law and bring in their guns.

who knows. This is just ridiculous.

I took my son into Boston today by train. While waiting for the train, you see the usual loons...yelling and talking to nobody but still disturbing to be around.

This young woman replied to me “ there are so many weirdos all over”. I said, Yeah, I’m getting sick of it!

I would have thought the Scotch drink (er, tape) dispenser would have gotten taken last.

Not the red stapler?

FoxHouston news-readerette just said that authorities have asked helos and news stations to not show all the ground activity going on as SWAT gets in place. They are concerned that Perp may have access to a TV and may be watching what is going on outside.

Easy mistake. No big deal. FYI, we have two major launch complexes. KSC (Florida) and VAFB (California). The manned operation center (i.e. mission control) is at JSC (Texas). Marshall Space Flight Center (Alabama) propulsion research and major science stuff. Also a huge Shuttle support facility.

There are a few other lesser known locations;

Goddard (just north of D.C.), lots of unmanned research stuff

Ames (Sunnyvale Ca.) The big wind tunnels and is a science center

Poker Flats (Alaska) Aurora research and sounding rockets etc.

Wallops Flight Center (Virginia) Smaller research rockets

Dryden (Edwards AFB) Nasa flight research and Shuttle 747 mate/demate center

Glenn Research Center(formerly Lewis) (Lake Erie) Stuff like hypersonic flight etc.

Stennis (Mississippi) Rocket test facility.

Technically, it’s FedLand, not Texas. It’s surrounded by Texas, but it is Federal land and Fed laws apply.

Which will of course bring more headlines and advertising. A mighty fine business plan they have there.

And another station is saying that some SWAT people have entered the building, but I didn’t see it happen. Another ambulance just pulled up into place with the other ones, lights flashing. Then it just parked.

That big blue hummer-type truck evidently can jack up or something - they said they could use it to see into the 2nd floor.

The rest of the JSC campus has been told to go home.
