Dear NASA and President Obama:
Please, please, please don't take my inattention to the current shuttle mission as a lack of commitment to my (and one day soon, "our"? Right?) Ventriloquist In Space Program (VISP). And it's not that I can't multitask, but...
It continues to bring challenges. The Malaysians are all of a sudden keenly interested in the BVWOC (TM), though I think they are just thinking about thinking about going to the Winter Olympics in the future. My site is getting a lot of that. Sort of the perfect place to start learning about the majesty of the Games.
It would be cool for you to have the shuttle crew watch him. I think he needs the encouragement. Maybe point the Hubble Telescope down to take a picture of him just at the right time. You can do that, right? If it's not cloudy?
I think that kind of action would bring the international flavor of space program and the international wonder of the olympics together.
I have a feeling that there will be a ventriloquist in space before there will be a ventriloquist in Malaysia or Pakistan, at least from what my research turned up. But this is where the VISP and world peace and cooperation come together.
You see that, don't you?
(TM) logo on my space suit? Not that I think you should go all NASCAR and sell adverstising on the suits. Again, it's the international gesture I'm thinking of.
I could sew it onto the space suit I've been stitching together here for practicing in, and let you see how it looks.
Would write more, but I've got to get my coverage crew ready for the day. Max and Steed are still sleeping. They had a late night.
Yours in space,
