Overheard on the elevator today: "Man, New York will throw a ticker tape parade for anyone these days." OK, explain to me how the Yankee's winning the World Series is something to recognized more so than the return to space of the first American in space. That is, aside from the fact that I have no idea why it was held in New York instead of Washington, DC. Ok, so I don't care that much, but the symbolic significance of the Glenn flight was obviously lost on the two morons in the elevator claiming that "New York looks for any excuse to have a party."
