AP reports that a "large" US spy satellite "has lost power and propulsion and could hit the Earth in late February or March, government officials said Saturday." Add this to the list of governmental war-game incompetence. It should go without saying that the satellite "no longer can be controlled" and that, morever, it "could contain hazardous materials." And even more alarming is the thought that "it is unknown where on the planet it might come down." If several flaming tons of technological wizardry doesn't fall on you, then those unspecified and nebulously qualified "hazardous materials" ("could contain"? one hopes--naively--that said government officials should have such information available) might ultimately cook you.

"Officials" should at some point realize that this planet is our oikos, a fundamental fact that has been taken far too lightly by those with claims to power. Tons of hazardous debris never "fall harmlessly" on our house.

Late February or March? I'll mark my calendar.
