The blog post itself is an interesting account about the post CAIB report, post VSE announcement time period.  It's also relevant to the policy and budget discussions going on now.

Might be worthwhile looking up who he refers to as the person who proposed ending American human spaceflight after Columbia.
Very likely Paul Shawcross, who was at OMB at the time.  (Maybe still is, not sure.)  Assuming that rings a bell: :)

(Also an interesting read at this time, too.)

I seem to recall at least one Congressman or Senator who was publicly advocating retiring Shuttle after the accident.

Thanks for the publicity folks.  I look forward to having much less constrained conversations than I had in the future.  And look, I even registered with NASASpaceFlight.com!  So here is my first post on your website.

Welcome aboard, Wayne! NASA press conferences have not been the same without you.

Oh my word, Mr. Hale on our site! Welcome, sir! :)

You should know that you already have God-like status around here, even with just 1 post! ;D

 :D

I just set you up on my blogroll and also look forward to your posts here. 

Can't tell you how much I appreciated your technical explanations in the press conferences in the RTF days and beyond. 

Before I had access to L2, I depended on the pressers to keep informed and always looked forward to them if you were briefing (probably a lot more than you did :) ).

I thank you for your service.

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened. -- Douglas Adams
