WaPo has what I thought would be a, well, pretty bad video article about a bunch of exNASA engineers complaining about government funding cutbacks. I thought that because of the front page caption:

VIDEO | In Huntsville, Ala., a new generation of rocket engineers inspired by the area’s trailbreaking past wants to remake space travel but is frustrated with the budget restrictions of today.

Being “frustrated with [] budget restrictions” is called life. Get over it, deal with it, move on, and stop whining.

Turns out, though, that the caption is pretty misleading; the video article is actually pretty good, albeit, uninteresting. Though, it does (probably inadvertantly) make a compelling case for privately funding most or all space exploration, rather than relying upon the government to do it.
