    Guess my humour isn't that black. As it Happens concluded tonites interview with former Canadian Astronaut Marc Garneau by playing " Mustang Sally".

    I remember they used that as one of the wakeup songs they played for the shuttle astronauts. I guess it's a pretty obvious choice. I think she liked it so...

    Looks like there may be some political fallout from her death. Sally Ride was openly gay and the word is, is that her partner of 27 years may get stiffed on the death benefits.

    If that's the case, I hope it becomes a very public issue. Wrong is wrong.

    Yes, I've heard something about that Robert.
    Maybe this will give that situation a push in the right direction.
