My first reaction to North Korea's failed rocket launch was good fucking riddance. Who more deserves failure than a ruling elite of a militarized totalitarian slave state? But North Korea remains problematic, so whatever schadenfreude I may experience at the very public failure or the rocket launch may be counterproductive.

Still, It's not hard to wish a quick end to DPRK, although after almost seven decades even an immediate demise would not really be quick.

North Korea's failure reminded me of early disasters in US rocketry. Those failures are well chronicled in Tom Wolfe's The Right Stuff ("Our rockets always blow up").

It's definitely rocket science.

I think you mean the phrase Rocket Surgery? As in the old canard, 'It's not rockery surgery!'

Good Blog, BTW!

Previous Deleted for spelling!
