THE SPHINX —– G.M. UN/NOT RECALL

Sphinx Main
The Editor:   Your title is confusing, Lois.

Chevy Cat:  It isn’t as cat-fusing as the facts.   G.M. has been covering up faulty ignition switches, air bags, and who knows what else.

The Editor:   It takes a month or so to recall a few faulty parts.

Corvette Cat:   It has been going on for 13 years, with over 300 dead customers.

It might have started with this model, our reporters are still uncovering the skeletons.

The Editor:   That is a long time, I’m sure the Feds will figure it out.  What is the problem, CC ?

Corvair Cat:  The keys fall out, or turn to acc., then the engine cuts off and a semi-truck loaded with poison chicken from China runs you and your family over.    The air bags don’t work and you all die.

The Editor:   When will the lawsuits be settled, CC ?

Camaro Cat:   When the Congress and President get their campaign contributions.

The Antennae Galaxies in Collision

Explanation: Two galaxies are squaring off in Corvus and here are the latest pictures. When two galaxies collide, the stars that compose them usually do not. That’s because galaxies are mostly empty space and, however bright, stars only take up only a small amount of that space. During the slow, hundred million year collision, one galaxy can still rip the other apart gravitationally, and dust and gas common to both galaxies does collide. In this clash of the titans, dark dust pillars mark massive molecular clouds are being compressed during the galactic encounter, causing the rapid birth of millions of stars, some of which are gravitationally bound together in massive star clusters.
