NASA Administrator Resigns

NASA administrator Sean O'Keefe resigned today to take a position at LSU.

This troubles me. I am afraid of what might happen to the agency when Bush appoints another one of his partisan idealogoues to run it. He already has a record of trying to inject politics into science. If the wrong person gets a hold of it, there might not be a NASA for much longer and that would be a tragedy for everyone.

This does bring to mind a joke:
Why did Bush want to go to Mars?
Because it's the red planet.
