Welcome back

Discovery lands safe and sound in California, after scrubbing a Florida landing twice due to inclement weather. Good news -- now after this scare, following on the heels of the Columbia tragedy, can we start talking about replacing this fleet of thirty-year-old spacecraft before anyone else is needlessly blasted off into harm's way? I mean, for crying out loud, these shuttles probably couldn't even pass an emissions test in the State of California, let alone ensure a safe voyage!
