      We really wish you wouldn’t be so introverted, Gun Bunny. Just say your piece and we’ll all understand.

      Actually I heartily concur with all, and would hoist the single digit Hawaiian Good Luck gesture in the direction of the JEF, aka SCoaMF.

    I am SO envious. I grew up in the Space Age, both real (Mercury) and Scifi.
    But I do not begrudge Elon and his workers their glory.
    All of this puts me in mind of the RAH story, “The Man Who Sold the Moon”.
