Taylor Swift.

I'm sitting waiting on a pickup order and the radio is playing that pop song, "shake it off" or whatever by whoever that adult still pretending to be 13 is. I've never heard this song completely. It is grating. But I'm trying to imagine performing this one live. Wow. It's non-stop start to finish. She's got to be exhausted after that set trying to sing it and bop around on stage. Respect, I guess. I couldn't do it. More a criticsm on the song writing I guess. It's over. Woo.
One thing is clear from the Challenger and Columbia losses and that is the STS program was doomed to experience catastrophic failures. We never should have developed it.

The episode "The Space Program" of the podcast Swindled is also worth checking out if you want to know more about the Challenger disaster.

I did learn some interesting stuff from the PR angle. For instance, how they sent up a congressman and a senator which led to Reagan feeling comfortable enough to call for a teacher to go. And sending her was a way to get the STS program back on the front page.

Its so eerie when you think about all the things that came together that led to it being see live by millions of people.
