I was wondering about that too

In case you didn't know, Mark Steyn has a lengthy letters column at his web site which gets updated every Monday. There's something for everyone, but this week I liked this one:
How about a column or a rant about foreign aid to these countries like China, India, Brazil, Nigeria and others who are committed to the “Space Race”. All of those countries get huge aid from the West in either straight cash or subsidies.

China has just sent a man into space and the others all have “space ports”. I guess their own domestic situation is so good they don't need our money any more....

Lance is right of course, but I'm not holding my breath.
