A good book, but certainly doesn't tell the whole story. A better pick would be real history -- The Mercury 13: The Untold Story of Thirteen American Women and the Dream of Space Flight, by Martha Ackmann (foreword by Lynn Sherr). The true story tells about women who were MORE qualified than many of the men chosen for the program. Including, and especially, John Glenn. In spite of the many roadblocks thrown in their way, they continued to train and make arrangements to be included in spite of being lied to by Those Who Think With Their Balls Instead of Their Brains. Think how much we could have accomplished if we had actually chosen the BEST.

I wonder if Brett Farve has read this book. If he has, I wonder what he thought of it. The whole world revolves around Brett don't you know.

Shouldn't you be making dinner for your husband right now instead of wasting time on the internet?
