Friday Quote

THE UNITED STATES CAN NO LONGER forge the large components for nuclear reactors. This can be done only in Japan; but China and South Korea are building new facilities to do the work.

The U.S. dominates the world now in only two disparate arenas: defense technology and entertainment. In nearly all else, it is slipping.

It will be a shocking day for Americans when people from another country walk on the moon, where astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin trod in 1969. But it will happen.
