NASA's Chronic Attention Deficit Disorder

NASA's next boondoggle always best, Opinion, Orlando Sentinel

"Six years after finishing the space station, NASA plans to retire it. Having gotten a whiff of the moon, NASA can't abandon its orbiting boondoggle fast enough. ...

... You know we are headed for a boondoggle when the agency's marketing division starts up a Web page called, "Why the Moon?"

And the first sentence is, "If you asked 100 people why we should return to the moon, you'd probably get 100 answers -- or more!"

Translation: We can't come up with one good one."
