STS-128 (ISS assembly flight 17A) is the next space shuttle mission to the International Space Station (ISS). It is expected to use Space Shuttle Discovery, and was planned for launch on 25 August 2009. The primary payload will be the Multi-Purpose Logistics Module Leonardo, a collection of experiments for studying the physics and chemistry of microgravity. The mission is scheduled to include three spacewalks to remove and replace a materials processing experiment outside ESA's Columbus module, and to return an empty ammonia tank assembly. The first launch attempt was delayed due to weather concerns including multiple weather violations in NASA's launch rules beginning over 2 hours before the scheduled launch. The second launch attempt scheduled for August 26, at 1:10:22 AM EDT was called off the previous evening due to an anomaly in a fuel valve of the orbiter. The next launch attempt is on Friday, August 28 on 11:59 PM EDT.
I had the video embedded earlier, but WWNC-AM has removed it from their Ustream account. I should have known they'd pull something like this, and I should be kicked for trusting them to leave it up and not recording the video myself. I thought the video was very telling, especially when Shuler made faces at some of the calls or when he laughed at the caller who suggested that people don't trust their government.
Given their predilection for WWNC and Matt removing stuff, here is the first two hours of the Town Hall I have swiped them and put them on my own webpage where they can't get at it:
The third hour, with reactions, has not been uploaded to the WWNC Podcast page yet.

WASHINGTON — Chicago Sun-Times columnist Robert Novak, one of the nation’s most influential journalists, who relished his “Prince of Darkness” public persona, died at home here early Tuesday morning after a battle with brain cancer.
“He was someone who loved being a journalist, loved journalism and loved his country and loved his family, Novak’s wife, Geraldine, told the Sun-Times on Tuesday.
Novak’s remarkable and long-running career made him a powerful presence in newspaper columns, newsletters, books and on television.

Girl Says Family Wants To Kill Her For Being Christian
ORLANDO, Fla. -- An Ohio girl ran away to Orlando because she said her family threatened to kill her for converting to Christianity. Rifqa Bary, 17, said she was threatened by her family because she converted from to Christianity.
"What did your father say to you?" WFTV reporter Mary Nguyen asked.
"He said he would kill me!" replied Bary.
They have to kill me. My blood is now halal which means because I am now a , I am from a Muslim background, it is an honor, if they love god more than me, they have to do this."
This is not just some threat. This is reality. This is truth. This is reality.
