I love this. We're spending $2 billion per week in Afgahnistan and hardly anyone cares. But if it smells like research, everyone's happy to kill it. On the other hand, if SETI ever detects something, what's the plan? We'd do well to remember that when the Native Americans finally met Columbus things didn't turn out so well for the Native Americans.
