Wasn't he the one who dissed the space elevator idea as stupid?

Could be Glom, but remember, he's a humor columnist.

Yeah, Dave Barry makes fun of everything from the American Revolution to real estate developers. I wouldn't take this as any real criticism of anything. You just get to laugh.

In 1938, Orson Welles did a radio ''news'' broadcast, based on The War of the Worlds, about invading Martians landing in the town of Grovers Mill, N.J. The broadcast created a nationwide panic, although it was of course a hoax: The Martians actually landed in Philadelphia, where many still reside, as evidenced by U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter.
IMHO Dave Barry is pretty funny, but I guess I have a pretty strange sense of humor too. As noted above, he makes fun of everyone.

Well, Swift, then we both have a strange sense of humor. :lol:
