Now, that's comforting...

I'm talking about this article I read on MSNBC this morning.

Oh, long story short, article is about, um, a spy satellite in a decaying orbit could hit North America in the next month or so. Oh, but no one involved is too concerned about sensitive secret technology falling into enemy's hands, so everything is okie-dokie.

I would be more concerned whether or not parts of it is going to fall on my house. Secret technology or no. It think that would be the least of my worries with a gaping hole in my roof and a small crater in my living room.

And about the person speaking with anonymity...what's the secret? That it was a spy satellite? That it's falling to Earth? You mean you really weren't going to tell us until someone popped up complaining that their Volvo got crushed by some steaming piece of space junk? Or was it going to be an "Oh, by the way..." explanation?

And then I'm reminded of the movie, The Andromeda Strain.

Just call me "Worse Case Senario Girl".
