If you are my age or older, you will remember when Houston was the home of “Mission Control” for our space missions. We should feel sorry for our children that they won’t know the wonders of NASA. It seems our government traded NASA for the NSA spying on us. Instead of exploring new frontiers, our government is obsessed with exploring our personal e-mail, phone records and monitoring what we say on Facebook. Yet, the loss of our space program is only an indicator of different priorities from our national government.
Another symptom of a change in our country is what is happening down in Houston. (Houston to Pastors: Forget Your Sermons Now Want Your Speeches) When I heard about how the Mayor of Houston was treating her churches, the first thought that popped into my head was how much I wish I lived in Houston so I could run against her in the next election. You can relax. I’m not seriously thinking of doing this! (Mom, don’t worry.)
