Vintage Vegas Postcards

Has there ever been a city that looked better
on a postcard than Las Vegas?

The buildings, the signs, the neon lights…
visual excitement captured on a simple little card.

Hotels gave them away,
souvenir shops sold them for a few cents.
Yet they’re priceless for the memories they bring.

The Wisdom of Ann Coulter

She’s a sassy fascist, ain’t she?

“God gave us the earth. We have dominion over the plants, the animals, the trees. God said, ‘Earth is yours. Take it. Rape it. It’s yours.’”—Hannity & Colmes, 6/20/01

To a disabled Vietnam vet: “People like you caused us to lose that war.”—MSNBC

“My libertarian friends are probably getting a little upset now but I think that’s because they never appreciate the benefits of local fascism.”—MSNBC 2/8/97

The Soviet Exploration of Venus

The Soviet exploration of Venus, from 1961 to 1985, is the largest effort ever undertaken to study another planet. The fundamentals of interplanetary spacecraft design and remote sensing were first realized in these missions. Successes included 3 atmospheric probes, 10 landings, 4 orbiters, 11 flybys or impacts, and 2 balloon probes in the clouds. Much of what is known today about our neighboring planet was discovered by these missions.
