You've probably seen some version of this headline: "NASA to Bomb the Moon Friday."

All we've got to say is, what took them so long? Mr. Show tackled this issue long ago.

We doubt the event Friday will feature country singer C.S. Lewis, Jr.'s "Blew Moon" ("Look out moon, America's gonna get ya; Gonna go kaboom, it was nice to have met ya -- Because you don't mess around with God's America.") Not to mention a cameo from Sarah Silverman as a protester chanting "We're earthlings; let's blow up earth things."

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
