Whilst I'm excited about the prospect of Bush's speech on returning to the moon on Wednesday next week, the skeptical side of me says it's probably another popularity stunt in an election year. If it's not, then people might start to get so excited about the project that Bush will use it to mask something important, like invading Syria or Iran....

Then there's the subject of money - if we're going back to the moon, who's paying for it, and with what. The US has record budget deficits because of the "war on terror" and Bush's runaway spending. It's like Labour's scorched earth policy in England: Rape the country for all you can and leave the next poor bugger to sort it out.
