When I heard about the problem about debris in space, I thought of Sputnick. I thought of the Space Program. I thought of Yuri Gagarin and John Glenn and Apollo, and those little capsules circling our planet. I thought of Astronauts and Cape Kennedy and Cape Canaveral and about how much I have been enraptured over the years in the Space Program, how I became friends with one or two astronauts, how I dreamed I could be them. Then I saw this cartoon. And I laughed and said, 'Only in America.' Only we can prevent forest fires, said Smokey the Bear to me growing up. Only we.
