Houston Has A Problem

Houstonians are upset at being left out when space shuttles were designated for display at museums in Los Angeles, New York, and Washington, D.C. and at the Kennedy Space Center. They seem especially angry about New York, which gets 45 million tourists a year.

NASA picked museums where the largest number of taxpayers will find it most convenient to view their property. It would be more logical for Houston to ask why the agency played favorites between its two primary mission-related installations by sending a shuttle to Florida. Since it would've been unfair to the American people if both spots had won, I'd like to learn more about the politics of that particular coin toss.
