BLOW BY BLOW: John Hawkins

BLOW BY BLOW: John Hawkins links to this thread on Free Republic.com. One of the “Freepers” started a thread simply to announce that the Shuttle would be visible in the San Francisco area on early Saturday morning as it landed. The thread then moves from lighthearted banter, to the eerie moment when the shuttle is first silent, to the heartsinking reality that it’s lost.
