The Brightest Star
Well it looks as if the much-vaunted international space station has been pretty much a ten-year waste of time. I suppose this is kind of sad, though I've never been one whose blood was much stirred by space exploration. But what I find really sad is that this man-made object is now the brightest star in the sky. This strikes me as not only sad but fundamentally wrong - I'd really rather it wasn't there at all. .
