Unhappy Remembering 1986

Ah, t'was the best of times. Terrorism was something that happened abroad. When a highjacker commandeered a plane, it was likely to escape tiranny and or poverty in his homeland and was seeking refuge in the USA.
Homeland security was a chain link fence with razor wire on top, and a good padlock.
Bush was and probably still is (chuckles) a dirty word.

That was a fine year, I remember being an excited 4 year old and going to the '86 expo in Vancouver, and my little brother was born. Ah those were the days, I miss the cold war era.

Oddly, I don't recall much at all and no, I do not wish to discuss the first picture.

Lost the space shuttle Challenger that year. The space program hasn't been the same since.

Our whole space program seems so absurd. Especially in light of such overwhelming problems down here. The rest of the world gets together and figures out how to provide proper healthcare, and we are on Mars turning rocks over and over. Government was formed to help us all with what we all NEED. It was never intended to be a funnel for those who already have too much.

But I digress.

Strapping a rocket to your butt is crazy.
