And this is a good reminder that just because one of your fellow space enthusiasts occasionally voices doubts about the SpaceX schedule announcements or is cautious about believing SpaceX has licked a problem before actually seeing proof that's true, it doesn't mean they hate SpaceX.

Why do they change to the blue map?

Kennedy looking nice, crossing fingers
Sure doesn't look like that's going to be necessary, as much as I'm one of the tiny number of people hoping for a diversion. :)
