    Thank you for this very interesting pod cast! You guys provide some great insights into more than just astronomy. My wife Linda, just retired from teaching elementary school after 35 years.

Talk about shooting oneself in the foot! Soon, only the wealthy will be able to get an education! That said…. ACK! Hey man, have you seen my country around here somewhere’s?
