Understatement of the year…

So, apparently the commander of the latest space shuttle mission went to the Oscar Wilde school of understatement. She claims that she and her crew are “disappointed” and “surprised” that the crumbling foam problem that led to the last shuttle crew’s firey and spectacular demise tens of thousands of miles above Texas still exists.

I don’t know about you folks, but if I were in her shoes I don’t think those are the words I would have chosen. I think I might have expressed my feelings as “fucking terrified” and probably used the names of several major deities in vain.
