Bush/Cheney to the Moon?

Greetings. The rumor is that the Bush White House is hard at work thinking of "big projects" to inspire the masses. One that keeps coming up is a return to the moon (that is, Earth's moon) -- maybe 15 years from now. There's even talk of establishing a long-term lunar base.

It's nice to know that the untold billions for such a project are just sitting around begging to be spent, while so many critical terrestrial needs go unmet. However, I might consider supporting a permanent moon base -- so long as it can be established immediately, and of course if I get to choose its permanent inhabitants...
