NASA Astronaut Drinking Scandal: Today's Cartoon

Personally, I don't see what all the fuss is about... if NASA used to fly monkeys into space, then what's the big deal with astronauts blasting off a few beers before take off? I mean, the directions aren't exactly complicated, especially when they've got two rocket boosters doing all the work.

It seems odd that for an agency that prides itself on the safety of it's space program, NASA would not invest the same consideration into ensuring that the "conditions" of its astronauts were equally suitable for flying. Then again, perhaps it is because of this that they need to make sure that everything else is absolutely perfect, so that these drunken cosmonauts don't steer the shuttle into a ditch.

Hmm... after NASA conducts its investigation, I wonder how many OTHER astronauts are going to end up with the nickname "Buzz".
