Sometimes the news spin is subtle. Whenever a test fails, they
are sure to splash the name of the company who built the thing
all over the front page, along with the number of taxpayer
dollars wasted. But when there is a success, such as today,
no mention anywhere of what company did what. Its a fairly
lengthy article, yet no mention of any company. The Payload
Launch Vehicle was made by Lockheed Martin, the kill vehicle
has parts made by Lockheed and Boeing and Raytheon. Even
the Booooeing and Raaaytheon parts managed to work properly,
yet no mention at all in the article. And this is the hometown
paper. {8-[ spike
