My First lesli_hannah Post

If you read lesli_hannah's blog, you know that she loves a good quotation and often posts them. I saw this one today on the profile of a Facebook friend and I had to post it here. And besides, I'm just too freaking busy to write the half dozen or so posts I've thought of the in the past few weeks. 
You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics looks so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, "Look at that, you son of a bitch."  
Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 astronaut, People magazine, 8 April 1974
