Argh. We may be going to B'ham for the only remaining matinee of this one.

Just listening to the trailer of the 'beep..... beep' of the signal made the hair on the back of my neck go up. I had no idea how intensely evocative that would be, having listened to the original broadcasts on the ancient 1950s television we still had at that time.

That was my America, the one that bred those men. I wish I knew where it has gone.

You know, I don't think I'd ever actually seen the footage of the first moon landing properly (it's one of those things that you see referenced so often that you feel you don't need to see it to think you've seen it, if you see what I mean). I didn't expect it to make me cry.

I wish we still had your America to look up to, and Space to look out and forward to. (Would it be possible to have that without also having The Russians to look suspiciously at?) The film made me feel that it was possible to have technologcial progress without spiritual barrenness; which made it all the more sad seeing what's become of all that hope.

We missed the boat, didn't we. All of us.
