Who’s In Control of the Spy Satellite?

Over the weekend, the government told us that a U.S. spy satellite has lost power, could not be controlled any longer, and would hit the earth – who knows where – in late February or early March. Well…that certainly makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!

Since they like to take credit for all things unpredictable and unpleasant, I’m waiting for Al Qaeda to claim that they have control of the wayward device. Bin Laden will release a tape predicting the explosion of some major U.S. monument… or – since we never know where they might strike – it could be a sleepy mid-Western town… But more likely, since the earth is ~70% water, it’ll fall into the ocean. Terrorism thwarted once again 🙂
