Eggs, Anxiety and Signals of a Nation’s Decline

Over eggs and anxious parenting we watched the shuttle launch for the last time. The same childlike glee anytime space and rockets get involved. On our mind, only things like: if there’s an emegerency we won’t be able to get to the space station? What’s this mean for our prestige and leadership? So China, Russia and India are still doing this?

The anxious beltway parent blames Obama. The girls think its all beautiful and create their own nostalgic sentiments for reflection later. Our fellow pancake and eggs patrons are all as excited as the girls. For some reason it has to die, though.
