Space Cases 2

Reading Fark today, I ran across one of the odder, more disturbing things I’ve read in a while.

They linked to some Smoking Gun pages about potential Apollo disasters, and the memos suggesting presidential comments at the time.

The whole thing is just bizarre, but I think the weirdest section is a fill-in-the-blank condolence, where even the names of the president and first lady are left blank.

They’re lucky as hell they never had to use these creepy, creepy documents.

    They’ve filled in the blanks twice – Apollo 1 and Columbia.

    Well, not for that specific statement. That statement appears to have been drafted after Apollo started flying (i.e. after Apollo 1) and obviously long before the shuttle.

    But I know what you mean.
