north pole moon

Water on the moon -

I missed the news that there is water on the moon, and even as I read this op-ed comment, kept looking to see if it was a spoof. One has to be very careful these days to check the source, but it appears there is water on the moon which could offer us vision, something that has been lacking for many years in this country. I know there are those who think we should focus on problems here before we scatter ourselves around the universe, but I believe we need something drawing us forth. There are visions within and visions without, and I like knowing that both are in active play.
