When I was a very young lad, I dreamed of growing up and becoming an astronaut, more specifically working on rockets and traveling through space. I also wanted to be a stand up comic. True story. Clearly, I was no good at either, and my inability to hit a curve ball hampered my dreams later of becoming a big league ball player. Regardless, I still enjoy America's past time and a good stand up comic routine from time to time, and I still follow closely the escapades of space exploration, the exciting discoveries in physics and astronomy, and NASA.
