Give me some examples! 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!
