Culture: March 2018 Archives

Keith's note: Former Senator, Geologist, and Apollo 17 Astronaut Jack Schmitt spoke at an event in Washington, DC today on lunar exploration. I can recall sitting in a Senate hearing in 1978 hearing Sen. Schmitt worrying about this topic, saying "we are eating our seed corn". His concern is even more poignant now.

ICE spokesman resigns, citing fabrications by agency chief, Sessions about California immigrant arrests, Washington Post

"A spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has resigned over what he described as "false" and "misleading" statements made by Attorney General Jeff Sessions and ICE acting director Thomas D. Homan. James Schwab worked out of the agency's San Francisco office until he abruptly quit last week. ... "I quit because I didn't want to perpetuate misleading facts," Schwab told the San Francisco Chronicle. "I asked them to change the information. I told them that the information was wrong, they asked me to deflect, and I didn't agree with that. Then I took some time, and I quit."

Keith's note: James Schwab worked for a number of years at NASA Ames PAO. I got to know him during his time at NASA. I have to assume that his NASA tenure helped to fortify his propensity to tell the truth - no matter what.
