Setting A Bad Example

NASA chief: Lawmakers need to improve infrastructure, schools, AP

"You've got to look at the high tech centers around the nation: Albuquerque, Los Angeles, the Bay Area of California, the Boston 128 corridor. You've got to look at those areas which in the past have been successful in attracting high tech and do what they did," said Griffin, who has a handful of masters degrees to accompany his doctorate in aerospace engineering. He noted competition for the high tech is fierce not only in the U.S., but around the world, adding that India and China are fasting becoming players. Space, he said, is the "new enterprise" of the 21st century and will determine the world powers of the future."

Editor's note: Meanwhile, as he lectures Florida politicians on what they should be doing, Mike Griffin is cutting NASA's education programs, gutting research and technology which lays the ground work for a future generation of researchers, and is erasing entire research disciplines from NASA's research portfolio. How many scientists and engineers won't be trained because of Griffin's decisions? What sort of message does that send - Do as I say - but not as I do?
