So long and good riddance

The world will be a safer place with the announcement of the death of Caspar Whine-and-cheese-burger, the out of control defence secretary of the Reagan administration.

To call this man a megalomaniac would be a gross understatement, the man was in charge of $US6 Billion A WEEK of defence expenditure during peacetime while he was US Defence secretary, a grand total of more than $US 1 Trillion!

The architect of the potentially apocalyptic Star Wars program SDI, $US 50 Billion later still not operational, could well have brought about the end of our planet as we know it. To credit him with helping to bring about the end of the Soviet Bloc is simply bollocks, he would much rather have blown it apart.

One thing to come out of all this is the Global Positioning System (GPS) the positional framework of Star Wars that has changed to way we navigate inside our world. The Mapguy is surprised that geospatial people have not blogged about the significance of this already.

Is that worth 1 Trillion? Maybe

Good riddance to one of the world's most dangerous men.

Amen brother! Is amazing the bullshit that gets proliferated about people like this when they die. I couldn't believe the crap they said about Reagan when he died.
