Late last month, a couple of congress-critters decided it would be a good idea to establish a national park . . . on the moon.
Yep, that’s right – they want to set up a United States national park on the ol’ cheeseball (as Rufus Quince has been known to call it). Opinions on the value and feasibility of the out-of-this-world piece of legislation are rather mixed. Decide for yourself. (I imagine the recruitment of park rangers would be quite interesting!)
The idea of making the lunar landing site into a historical tourist attraction reminds me of my short story TAG-ALONGS, in which visiting such pivotal points in history as the moon landing can become the vacation of a lifetime – until something goes horribly wrong.
