Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

From the Silly News Desk

Some news from Cape Canaveral. All those PHDs at NASA and none of them in spelling!

NASA is apparently much better with numbers than letters.

Earlier this week, one of NASA's space shuttles arrived at its launch pad at the Kennedy Space Center, and officials hung a banner in front of it reading "Go Endeavor."

The problem: The space shuttle's name is spelled the British way, with a "U". That's "Endeavour." The name is a reference to the first ship commanded by 18th century British explorer James Cook.

The banner was up for about 90 minutes before being replaced by one with the correct spelling, but with photographers on hand for the arrival of the shuttle, cameras captured the mistake. Endeavour's launch is scheduled for Aug. 7.
