The space shuttle program is ending, and it would be ridiculous to imagine this will mean a lower Space Tax for all of us who have no interest in shoving our thumbs into space and wiggling them around. How shall the government reallocate our money previously committed to space shuttles? I propose that it procure for us a second moon. Moons are nice. Many other planets have more than one moon. I, even though I have no interest in wiggling my thumb around in space, would like another. I think everyone would. It would be a gesture of goodwill toward all earthlings, way better than the Olympics.
The potential flaw in this plan is its tidal and perhaps orbital implications. I'm confident government astrologers, who will soon be free of responsibilities relating to space shuttles, will be able to figure this out for us. Who's with me?
