Today would have been the 100th birthday of Wernher von Braun

I must be getting old and predictable. As soon as your post title was visible, before I could scroll the video into view, I knew exactly what it would be!

I wish I had something to say in Dr. von Braun's defense, but I could not do better than Tom Lehrer... not-quite-Dr. Lehrer, I believe... has done in roasting him. It's as difficult as, say, finding something nice to say about Dick Cheney after his heart transplant.

Just waiting for the heart jokes.... I've read that people change after transplants and sometimes 'pick up' personality traits from the dead donor... can we hope the donor was a raging hippie liberal?
