At Long Last the Catholic Church Must Be Destroyed
By excommunicating a nun who aided a desperately ill woman in obtaining a life saving abortion, the anti-female Roman Church that helped put Hitler in power and invented anti-Semitism has shed the moral legitimacy necessary for its existence.

The Death of Human Space Flight
The end of the shuttle program without an immediate follow up American system for putting people into space probably heralds the ultimate decline of space travel for fundamental practical reasons.
