Front page stories in newspapers across the country scream that, at last: Water Has Been Found On The Moon! I mean, there’s water in India. And there’s water in Uganda. And there’s water in El Salvador… A lot of it unsafe to drink. But the poor are drinking it, and dying. And then there’s all that polluted water in the Great Lakes. And what about not enough water in southern California? And… Yet we’re spending billions of dollars on this moon thing. Billions of dollars that could be spent setting up water purification systems in the Third World, better water filtration plants for the Great Lakes, and water pipeline conduits into Southern California. All on this planet. Have we become so devoid of common sense?
