Dazed and Confused in Houston

12 December 2004: Amid the house cleaning, NASA needs a sweep-out, OpEd, Cragg Hines, Houston Chronicle

"Why all the balletic avoidance of a central implication in the independent study on how to extend the life of the Hubble Space Telescope? Hasn't NASA chief Sean O'Keefe been so wrong and so duplicitous in his attempt to kill the gloriously successful project that he should quit in embarrassment or be fired?"

Editor's note:Let's see, Cragg: a NASA Administrator errs on the side of safety - and does so in response to a report chronicling the mistakes that led up to the loss of 7 astronauts - most of which had to do with lack of attention to safety - and now you think he should be fired? Calling for him to step down over the Hubble decision is not only unsubstantiated, it is just plain goofy.
