I'd compiled a couple of link lists, but they've scrolled off the home page. Thanks to Manila's Include Message macro, I created a set of links and then included them over on the left on my home page.

(housekeeping note: it was high time I got rid of that behind the curtain badge that was old old old. Other side-bar tasks suggest themselves, such as more recent foto and one of those one-liner self descriptions.)

Watched the Bush appearance on NASA TV via Real Player. He pretty much said what's been previously reported.

The link is to the AP story about it. Here's CNN's.

UPDATE: Rand Simberg blogged the speech and dicusses its implications.

At the Wild About Mars event, someone asked about sending a bunch of smaller rovers. Send a mothership with a bunch of them. The call for proposals went out to the scientific community: What do you want to study there? Maybe that'll get on the front-burner if all goes as stated.

(Doubts have been expressed, given Bush's record of appearances proposing grand things, but reduced or no follow-through on the funding.)
