Notice the totally stupid comment by so-called comedian Dennis
Miller about billions and billions of light years. There are 46
sun-like stars within 54 light years. Wonder if he would re-
think his opinion? I doubt it.

One might expect that others in the local neighborhood might
want to check out this primitive society whose major activity is
tribal warfare to make sure we don't bother the neighbors.

At least the tone of the editorial isn't too bad.
