Slow News Day for Marcia Dunn

Pre-Flight Drinking Report Irks Spacemen, AP

"This weekend as the seven astronauts relax before Tuesday's blastoff into space, the beer will be cold and waiting at crew quarters at Kennedy Space Center. No one will monitor how much they drink, no breath tests given. "We're all professionals," says Scott Kelly, commander of the last space shuttle mission in August. While the outside world was aghast at a medical report a few months ago suggesting two cases of drunkenness just before launch, the men and women who fly NASA's space shuttles are indignant."

Editor's note: It must be really hard for Marica Dunn to dig up some real news these days. So instead she just creates "news" out of thin air. There is no story here Marcia.
