Gimme One Of Them There Shuttles

Deal on used vehicle simply too sky high, Huntsville Times

"We don't have that kind of money and to be able to do that kind of fundraising effort in this economy is unrealistic," Al Whitaker, spokesman for the Space Center, said Thursday. After all, it took the center nearly 5 years to raise about $22 million to refurbish its Saturn V rocket and build the new Davidson Center for Space Exploration, $20 million less than what NASA wants for a shuttle, Whitaker said."

Editor's note: Why not follow the time-honored tradition in Huntsville (and elsehwere) and get Congress to shove it into NASA's budet as gratuitous pork?
