Friday, October 19 in the news....

  • With 15 months to go in office, President George W. Bush wants the U.S. Congress to know he has no plans to fade quietly away, the President says he will be 'sprinting to the finish line'. Unfortunately, no one watches the Special Olympics.

  • China might not have a permanent presence in space yet, but the country is already thinking about setting up a Communist Party in space. The branch will occupy a future space station, but not until the outpost is established, and not until astronauts who object to it have moved to Taiwan.
