Have I Really Grown This Cynical?

Ten years ago, Bush's announcement of a renewed government commitment to space (which includes a proposed human presence on the moon and the eventual possibility of manned exploration of Mars) would have had me shouting "Hallelujah!"s and "It's about time!"s and practically wetting my pants with joy as I gave in to the ecstatic fervor of a True Space Believer. But I look at this now, and, I have to admit, the first thought in my head is basically, "Great, something else to mismanage horribly in space."

Quick, somebody say something to help me get my True Believer fervor back. I miss it.
