“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

The last Transit of Venus in our lifetimes

Listen up geeks, tomorrow morning at 5:04CDT will by the last chance until 2117 to witness the transit of Venus across the face of the sun. Because the plane of Venus's orbit is slightly oblique to that of Earth, it only passes directly between Earth and the Sun every 121 years or so. In other years it's too high or too low.

Plan to get up a little early like me and open this site from NASA and watch a web cast of it.
