Those who don't vote will be hit by space trash!

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (Nov. 3) -- A refrigerator-sized piece of space junk fell harmlessly into the South Pacific Sunday night, according to NASA.
The junk was a tank full of ammonia coolant on the International Space Station that was no longer needed. Astronaut Clayton Anderson threw it overboard during a spacewalk in July 2007.
Which leads to this email from MoveOn.org, which has nothing to do with trash:

A vote against space trash is a vote for galactic socialism!
