Greg Bear’s Takedown

On last Friday’s Talk of the Nation Science Friday, they broadcasted from that new Science Fiction Museum.
One of their call-in callers tried to make the argument that we spend too much on manned missions to Space and we should spend that money on making Earth perfect and good and not waste it up there.
Greg Bear took down the whiny little bitch:
“What if we waited to clean up our house and clean the bathrooms and make our beds before we ever stepped outside the door? How often would we step outside the door? Think how boring life would be.”
If you want to hear the broadcast…
Science Friday June 18, 2004 Hour Two.
The whiny little bitch comes on at 33:00 into the program.
