I am, to be sure, delighted that NASA has elected to put a Web site specifically for kids in an effort to get children more interested in science. Good for them!

On the other hand, given the current administration’s noteworthy track record on science in general—and science at NASA in particular—I’m not 100% comfortable with what they might be forced to foist off on our impressionable Youf.

“Hey Kids! Be a part of the wonderful world of Science! Learn why global warming is nothing to be worried about! Plumb the sanitized-for-your-spiritual-protection origins of the Unverse! Thrill to the bizarre claim that no mutation has ever proved to be beneficial to a species!”

I can’t wait to see what they might come up with for a mascot: puppet, perhaps? Ooh, how about Pinocchio? Controlled by strings and a habitual liar.  😀
