Although the idea may have been stifled thanks to the moon-for-peace presidents of Eisenhowser, Kennedy, and Johnson, there are still hopes our sad-faced hunk of stellar cheese could become a missile base and head spy quarters for the US.

I hope you'll read why, even now, we believe the truth will prevail—and why we aren't giving up on our goal of raising $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall, even though there's a long way to go to get there. Please help close the gap with a tax-deductible donation today.
