Yeah I know it sound like sour grapes,but its more than that.  Hell I'ld
like private secor people to out do NASA!  I think NASA's been siting on
its reputation for over 20 years, and has unwittingly (I hope) convinced
people that space is imposible, impractical, and inaccessable for anyone
smaller them a multinational corporation.  Space has been the most stagnent
frountier in centuries, and it doesn't need to be.

We can try.  Well ... I do have this idea for mining oil from near earth
objects.  Should be worth a couple hundred billion dollars each.  If
anyones interested?  ;)
