Now You Know

No, by the grace of God, you will NOT plead ignorance. You will NOT testify that you never knew any better because no one ever taught you anything better. You will not plead that you were never told.

Moving Right Along. . .

. . . from my immediately preceding post where someone was definitively established to be NOT a rocket scientist, to someone who has been definitively established to be a rocket scientist.

Dr. Pat Santy of Dr. Sanity has the excellent post up to which I have just provided you the link in the title to this post and in the preceding sentence.

I'm not the optimistic sort by nature, but I want Dr. Sanity's first alternative outcome to be the true one. [Perhaps some of the positive optimism on her blog is rubbing off the more I read it.]

For all these reasons, many people at NASA--particularly the more incompetent, change-resistant managers, invested in the old way of doing business--will hate his guts and do everything in their power to obstruct him. If Griffith is truly "the chosen one" --who will make the necessary changes in NASA culture that will restore balance to the tension between science, technology, business and government and ignite a revolution in space exploration--then he very possibly could become one of the most pivotal and important NASA Administrators we've had in a long, long time.
We can only hope and pray for the best to come true.

You've been told and NOW YOU KNOW.
