RE: ARRL article on Dennis Tito flight to the ISS



Then again (with a broader international view in mind) perhaps we should be
outraged and ashamed that it was an American citizen who bought his way onto
the ISS.  Dennis certainly is not the first to buy his way into space - a
Japanese broadcasting company bought a ride to Mir for one of their news
folks some years back.     

Being outraged and expressing parochial USA-centric opinions is a waste of
time.  As someone said before - consider carefully what you say - such
statements might also come back to haunt us someday.

 I'm sure the ISS could use a maid/butler. Honestly I think
someone buying their way onto the ISS is outrageous and
someday it will haunt Russia.
