What a nasty, arrogant, little man.
Someone please tell me what NYC did to deserve a shuttle in comparison to Houston, home to NASA and one of the largest collections of space vehicles.
Sen. Schumer, I have a couple of questions.
Do you really believe that NYC is the tourist hot spot of the USA? (I assume the answer is yes)
Do you believe as President Obama stated during his campaign the we need to “spread the wealth around”? (I’ll assume the answer to this question is yes as well)
By your logic then, NYC has more than it’s share of tourist draws and really doesn’t need the shuttle and should share it with some other city that might deserve some help or maybe even a city that actually “earned” the right to such a prize!
I would hate to think that the Administration would play politics with awarding the retired shuttles to various locations, but it is hard not to come to that conclusion.
