"Oh, Lonesome Me!"

thumb_earth_oblique.jpgOh, Lonesome Me, was written and recorded by Don Gibson with Chet Atkins back in 1958 for RCA-Victor (you can google for the lyrics or check out YouTube to listen to a recording).
  
The song made the Top Ten back then, but it may be ready to make a comeback in 2009 - at least in the opinion of most Earthlings!  Once again, the Wizards of Washington have shut out Earth and have chosen just one response:  19. ... 0-0.
  
I'm beginning to feel mighty lonesome ...
  
Maybe Astronaut Greg Chamitoff's 20th move will spark enough debate to allow Earthlings to once again, enter the fray.

Anyone planning to attend the Supernationals, April 3-5 in Tennessee will have an opportunity to meet Greg Chamitoff, as he exercises his land-legs at the Gaylord Opryland Resort (along with Garry Kasparov!).
