“The Right Stuff”

This evening, I watched the 1983 movie, “The Right Stuff” based on Tom Wolfe’s book about our Mercury Astronauts,  the first group of 7.   Ed Harris plays the part of John Glenn, later a Senator from Ohio and candidate for his party’s nomination for President.   It occurred to me that based on Harris’ portrayal of Glenn, we may have missed a grand opportunity.    It’s too bad a man like Glenn is not around for us to choose today.  He had the right stuff.
