There was an article yesterday that said NASA’s Phoenix Mars Lander had a “set of little globules attached to the struts on Phoenix’s legs.” Researchers say this could indicate there is indeed water on Mars. As I read this, I couldn’t help but think we have spent billions of dollars on Mars missions to, among other things, find out whether there’s water there or not. Yet we know for sure that millions of people on this planet don’t have safe drinking water. Couldn’t that money have been better spent on, oh, helping purify the water for all these desperate people?! Note: On a campaign stop in Wapokeneta, Ohio, I told the newspaper there that as president I’d lobby to end the Space Program and funnel the money into more foreign aid. Incidentally, Wapokeneta is the hometown of astronaut Neil (“One small step for mankind…”) Armstrong. We try not to pander to anyone.
