Noteworthy:

 

"Sequestration would significantly set back the ambitious space exploration
plan the President and Congress have asked NASA to carry out."

What "Ambitious Plans" has the president set forth, exactly? Voyages to a
cotton candy asteroid aboard a gingerbread space ship at some point several
generations from now? Apart from the adventures of Captain Platitudes aboard
the USS Empty Promises, I ain't heard a one.
