30. You would take the orbiter from California?
Even though the orbiters were BUILT here? Even though the shuttles were DESIGNED here? Even though the Enterprise was put though its 13 test flights and the shuttle was deemed airworthy here? Even though we had a fully functional set of shuttle launch platforms built at Vandenberg, and were originally intended to be the launch points for HALF of the space shuttle liftoff's? Even though the very first shuttle launch landed here? Even though a total of 43 of the 133 launches to date had Edwards as a final destination?

You REALLY think that Ohio is more deserving of a shuttle than California?
