Is that that your pic?

That's Gary Seven (played by Robert Lansing) in an episode from the original Star Trek series. He played a time traveller.

I prefer his recurring role in the old TV series 12 O'clock high (60's.) He played General Frank Savage a bomber pilot during WWII.

He’s an insensitive self serving opportunistic little twit.

Can’t say I especially care for him.

I’m so sorry you’ve lost a good co-worker in such a horrible way. Sometimes I worry that NASA has a lot of mentally shaky engineering geeks among its contractors. When I first learned about Russell Yates’ bizarre personal life, it was alarming to think that somebody like that was allowed to work in a NASA facility. He simply can’t have come across as normal and stable, and yet he’d worked there for a number of years.

If you hear anything about a possible ID on the female hostage, I’d like to know. I have a college friend who works there (does something related to space shuttle electrical systems, last I heard).

I was qwondering if mom4kittys had that pic on her PC ir if she had just used a link. ;o)

As far as the cat goes, if you are familiar
with the episode, you know that Gary Sevens’
60’s era human secretary,(played by Terri
Hatcher) had designs on Gary, and resented
the cat...Who gave Ms Hatchers character,
a quick glimpse of another “side” of the
pussys’ “character”, at the end of the
show....as it were. :oP

Yep public building and all that ..

But its on Federal property, controlled access, the whole works...Not going to get on the property without being badged and escorted...I too, like a lot of others whom have posted here, worked there...

.. but there are probably some Texans that ignore that part of the CCW law.

Are you serious??? Or are you just being sarcastic??? Those of us who have jumped through the hoops of obtaining a Texas CHL do our best to promote, and encourage people to comply with the Federal, State and Local laws in regards to firearms and other issues relating to security at facilities like this...We may not like a lot of them, but I beleive we do our bet and then some...And we deplore dispicable acts like this from people who can't handle personal issues and decide to do something utterly stupid like take others lives down with you because you can't deal with life's little bumps...

I apologize if I am wrong and you were just spouting off...But you were a Marine, and you should know better than that...

Yeah, you know thats a real problem...Even a stray bullet flying all the way from Houston (Clear Lake) Texas, across the vast expanses of the Gulf of Mexico, across the middle of Florida all the way to the Kennedy Space Center on the Atlantic coast of Florida would be a real concern for say...

Endangered migrating Whooping Cranes...Right???

I guess your whole “multi-billion dollar joke thing” struck a cord with me somehow...

Am very sorry you knew the shooting victim and that this occurred at your facility. If you learn the “reason” for the shooting, could you please let us know. Just listened to Fox replay and they did not know the ‘reason’....what triggered the violence.

Here at MSFC, we have Federal Cops who have arrest powers and everything. With the huge Army presence we have here on Redstone, I kinda figured that might be why we have them. But, NASA has Tens of Billions of dollars invested in satellites, space stationa and other critical assets. Having a Swat team and federal officers on base wouldn’t suprise me at all.

SWAT teams came from off site. The spokesman for the teams is a coastie (USCG). They were probably sent over by the USCG station at Ellington.

Probably not the most opportune time to remark on it, but your tagline....ROFL!

I got that from an old defense contract manager who moved into the NASA contracting world about 15 years ago. He had a million sayings like that (back in days when managers could cuss and flirt like a good 'ol boy) that he would use in meetings to drive home a point. I still laugh at the time he used my tagline on me in a meeting. We had a failure during a structural test, and I was running the stress numbers to try and figure out why the part broke. "I'm just trying to get a warm feeling about the stresses that we're looking at." You can imagine the rest of the exchange.

The Speech Police wouldn't&rsquo like a comment like that these days. How unfortunate that innocuous wit and humor like that is stifled anymore because of sexual harassment concerns, yet most of the truly degrading smut on the airwaves goes unchallenged.

You’re welcome. Glad to know it’s not your friend. Evidently this lady was the person who called 911.....so she did well. They said she stayed very calm. They still don’t know exactly what happened - all I’ve heard is something about an argument that happened at lunch and they have found a napkin or small piece of paper with writing on it that might help explain things - but they haven’t told what that writing was.

because you can't deal with life's little bumps...

On what planet did you develop a view of life as having "little bumps" which cause extreme behavior? Would a "little bump" be the loss of a loved one or mental illness or combat related problems or physical disability or an alsheimer's afflicted parent or traumatic economic loss or what? It is nice that you may have (so far) escaped these little bumps but you must be aware that other people have to deal with these challenges and certainly do not view them as little bumps.

I spoke with a friend, who used to work with NSA. He said that he is convinced that this incident is tied to MKULTRA.

He said that MKULTRA project was secretly moved under the guidance of NASA about 10-12 years ago. He said that this incident was not suprising to him, but the timing was.

Anyone know any specifics to MKULTRA?

Well when you take that part out of context, then yes it definitely appears that I am crase and not capable of compassion, or never been in combat...

Wrong, wrong, and sooooo wrong...

Having issues and “little bumps” in your life IS part of life...But when you allow those “little bumps” to influence you enough (to become “bigger bumps” or issues) to take out your frustrations and anger on someone else...That to me is extremely poor character...I don’t care how bad it is...I meant absolutely no disrespect to those suffuring from medical issues that influence mognative reasoning skills...I hope someone in that condition has access and support from family and friends that can help that person...

I hope I clarified my position better for you...

I believe you and I are in the same book, but maybe on different pages/chapters...

Phillips also listed the names and contact information for two relatives and wrote that he did not hurt Crenshaw because ``she was a very, very nice person,'' Baimbridge said.



I guess thats the '6 deg separation' between Virginia and this.
