An exciting time for heaven

It's been an exciting couple of days to be watching the heavens. Yesterday, the first private space flight in history took place, boldly going where no non-government-funded spacegoing venture had ever gone before. That's just amazing news -- some serious Zephram Cochrane-type business. Here, I picture 63-year-old test pilot Mike Melvill at the helm of SpaceShipOne, popping in a CD of Steppenwolf's "Magic Carpet Ride" as he punches his way out of the atmosphere, just like old James Cromwell did while making his historic flight in the Phoenix in Star Trek: First Contact.

And keep your eye on heaven, because it looks like pro wrestler Marty Jannetty is headed there too: The former Midnight Rocker became a born-again Christian on Sunday. Assisting with Jannetty's baptism was none other than his erstwhile tag-team partner, the also-recently born-again Shawn Michaels. Here, I picture Shawn superkicking a caught-offguard Marty, then seizing him by collar and belt and forcibly dunking him into the baptismal pool, just as he hurled him through Brutus Beefcake's barbershop window all those years ago.
