End of a Dynasty....

IO9 reports that nearly 1,400 space shuttle workers laid off in Florida and Texas, preparing for the imminent demise of the Space Shuttle program.

NASA contractor Space Alliance laid off 1,394 workers or about 15% of the contractor's workforce.

Somehow the rest of the story where Space Alliance thanks all those people for their commitment to getting people into space and hoping they find employment quickly, has exactly the opposite effect the sentiments were to engender.....As a matter of fact it leaves me feeling very empty.
