Space Shuttle Discovery

On Sept. 30 the astronauts received their wake-up call "Good Morning Discovery!" from Robin Williams doing a reprise of his "Good Morning Vietnam," a movie about Armed Forces Radio and Television Service. What was not said was that as of that date the Administration chopped the worldwide AFRTS broadcasts formerly heard 24 hours a day. Not even a peep on the morning of Oct. 1. What cynicism!
