The only reason NASA Flight Control Center
ended up in Houston was to glorify Johnson,
and keep his Texas fed with even more Tax
Dollars. He no doubt calculated the 1st
word from the Moons surface would be 'Houston'.

Isn't that quite enough for you Texas?
With a near $18 billion budget deficit
this year, how could you pay for it, if
not using Federal money?

California actually built the thing, so
that scores 1.

Grounding the Space Shuttle, with no indigenous
Man-rated vehicle to take its place is a disgrace.
