Eddie Bernice Johnson Thinks We Need a National Park On the Moon

This great news comes to us via The Washington Post. Here’s the gist:

A bill (HR 2617) introduced by Reps. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) and Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Tex.) on Monday, if passed, would establish the Apollo Lunar Landing Sites National Historic park. So no, this would not be a park that you pack the kids in the Winnebago and summer vacation to — unless “Winnebago” is somehow code in your family for “space craft that could take you to the moon.”

More importantly, has anyone run this by Newt Gingrich?

    Only way I’m in favor of this park is if it features a nuclear attack submarine.

    Tim’s right. This actually seems less crazy than a maritime museum in Dallas.

  • David Burrows

    How about the Klyde Warren Moon Deck Park?

  • Jeff Fielder

    There was a space-traveling Winnebago in Spaceballs, so let’s not discount the idea just yet.
