    of fruit juice. When times are tight, you ask yourself, "Do we really need a half gallon on apple juice and a half gallon of cranberry juice?"

    The answer is: no. it's nice to have but not entirely necessary.

    Sorry. But 50 million Americans are on freakin food stamps. Ask them if they give a rats ass about the space shuttle right now.

    I'm glad that private industry is shouldering some of the burden right now. And the space shuttle needed to be paused. Maybe it'll come back one day. Maybe not. But right now we just don't need cranberry juice.
