I used to cheerlead in high school, and I had the biggest crush on one of my teammates' brothers.

I was in tears because it hurt so bad!

Being an American is something I wanted to be for a very long time, probably since I saw the moon landing when I was a child.
To die is landing on some distant shore.
I live for playing live. All my records are live, since After the Gold Rush, with the exception of Trans and the vocals on Landing on Water.

Michael J. Massimino
Just had a close call landing in Tampa. The tires blew out upon landing.
Knots Landing is the best thing that ever happened to me.
The event of the landing of these brethren upon our shores is to be, not without its beneficial effect, as well to the colored population of this country, as it promises to be to ill-fated Africa.

I'm urging NASA to foster the development of what I call 'runway landers.' No, that's not the name of a high stakes gambler from Vegas. It's a type of spacecraft that flies to orbit like the retiring Shuttles but then glides to a landing like an airplane on a runway. Just like the Shuttles do.
Landing in the ocean and waiting for the Navy to come alongside and haul you out of the drink is what space capsules require. And after the capsule is recovered, it would take weeks for the ship to return to port.
