    Earlier today, I was looking for an excuse to post a whole bunch of the cool space pictures released from Curiosity today, which I often used to do, under the "now for something completely different -- space news" justification.

    Just because they are super cool and fun.

    But, given how hot the election competition is, I chickened out remembering  some folks around here occasionally complain about the number of "non-Democratic Party-Let's win elections" posts.  

    I was trying to think of a reason of why I could say why posting these great Mars photos would help us elect "more and better Democrats" then got distracted by Santorum bursts out laughing at Romney's ACA debacle.

    Maybe I'll quote you tomorrow, suggesting that NASA research and exploration advances our technology, stimulates our economy, elevates our spirits, increases our national prestige, better educates our people, and demonstrates the competency and capability of government programs.    And, also provides us future places we might send Republicans for rehabilitation camps so they can be cured and returned as productive members of society.

    If anyone complains I'll refer them to you.  :-)

    Thanks for posting this.
