This Saturday, September 14, there were two stories in the news that should have been put together.
The first was that the U.S. satellite Voyager has left our solar system. The second: One town has adopted a new rule that pet cemeteries can allow animal owners to be buried with their pets.
Taken separately they don’t have much in common. Taken together, it looks like Voyager wants to be about as far away from our civilization as it can get. Meanwhile folks with pets would rather be buried with them than spend any more time around the idiots that inhabit our country.
