Pigs in Space. in The Nation, an item about pigs in space.

At first I thought this was about sending pigs -- bacon -- into space. No doubt they’d be glowing green and hybridized piggies with mustard plants or jellyfish.

But this isn’t about those kinds of pigs, it’s about human “pigs” in the opinion of the writer. Ga-zillionarie Simonyl paid $20 million dollars to go up in space. And girlfriend Martha Stewart carefully prepared candied fruit for the trip.

As they point out, hey, come back to earth. Does Katrina ring a bell?
