Crack found in foam on space shuttle

Astronauts look around nervously, shuffle feet. One says, "Dude, that's not my crack. Someone must have planted it in the foam!"

Sorry. Couldn't help it.

I hope the flight goes off without a hitch, although I'm starting to feel kind of Capricorn One-ish about it right now. "We got a call from the White House. Approval numbers are still down, even though we took the Japanese dude to Graceland. Can we postpone lift-off until July 4th? We can have fireworks and someone singing about being proud to be an American and all that stuff..."

God. Capricorn One. A movie with Sam Waterston and... O.J. Simpson. I'm surprised that hell didn't freeze over.

I actually happened to see the takeoff live yesterday. I was surprised at how paranoid I felt; it took me right back to seeing Challenger explode live.
