      Hail, Columbia!

      Think of the space shuttle as a fractal element of the Federal
      government. Fractals, you'll recall, are those bizarre, intricate
      structures composed of miniature copies of themselves, such as the
      famous Mandelbrot Set, or deceptively mundane broccoli. Most fractals
      are elegant, often beautiful, arrangements that emerge from patterns
      created from their constituent elements. The post-constitutional Federal
      government, on the other hand, is a grim kaleidoscope of dubious
      projects with obscene price tags, of which the space shuttle is but one
      component. Nevertheless, since the elements that make up a fractal look
      like the overall structure, we can learn much about the whole by
      studying one of its parts. The space shuttle, then, has much to teach us
      about the political system that spawned it.
