Mars can wait

Dear Editor:

Finally here’s some good news. NASA said the costly Mars Science Laboratory is delayed. So, the good news is the $2.3 billion won’t be spent as fast as expected. The bad news is NASA expects a $400 million extra cost.

Are these people nuts? Most of us can’t pay our utilities and NASA is making more space junk.

Write your Congress folks to stop this insanity. Let them find new energy sources. Mars can wait, but we can’t!
