The disappearance of live video feeds after STS-48?

<snipped, with _respect_ to Mr Prokic, a distracting appeal to
authority indicating an unsupported 'inside' knowledge based on
an, at best and likely, superficial relationship. I myself had a
similar relationship with the government for over two decades
involving cutting edge aviation subjects and hardware, and never
so much as heard a vauge 'bupkus' regarding what we _all_ found
out later to be so, or what was really going on>

Trying hard _not_ to be a conspiracy nut, I still think we do
ourselves a disservice to employ a philosophy, ludicrously
appealing, that there is no conspiracy at all! Never A Straight
Answer seems the time honored policy of _any_ bureaucracy, and
is only _gently_ chiding to an administration as close to the
_obviously_ twitchy stuff as NASA is. I think it likely that
most are guilty of far more than we blithely suspect. Besides, I
am suspicious of, and on my guard against blind 'worship' for
any institution that seems, with every breath, to be
demonstrating the opposite of what's required for _this_
taxpayer's appreciation!
