Highs & Lows. Irony. During Super Tuesday evening

I juxtaposed the HIGH of Astronaut Scott Kelly’s (& Mikhail Kornienko)

return w/ the LOW of a

let’s-jettison-all-civility-courage-&-(why-not)-integrity primary.

No mounting up w/ wings of eagles* for many in this cadre

& their coterie of monied support.

We’re a people in danger of dedocking, burning & plummeting

if wise heads don’t prevail

& aim, like Mr. Kelly: HIGH.



I listened first to such as this from NASA

“Astronaut Scott Kelly and cosmonauts Mikhail Kornienko and Sergey Volkov undocked from the station at 8:02 p.m. EST to begin their voyage home. Volkov, the Soyuz commander, is at the controls of the Soyuz TMA-18M spacecraft. They will perform a separation burn to increase the distance from the station before executing a 4-minute, 49-second deorbit burn at 10:32 p.m. The crew is scheduled to land at 11:25 p.m. southeast of Dzhezkazgan, Kazakhstan.”


and then this: (gosh darn it, I don’t want to put youTubes of the speeches here; lots are available; just google it.
