The Slice

Can't believe it has been almost 10 years

The Space Shuttle Columbia disaster took place on Feb. 1, 2003.

It's hard to believe it has been that long.

It seems like just four or five years ago that I was interviewing astronaut Michael Anderson on the phone before a 1998 flight on Endeavor. And I remember visiting with his parents in their living room here in Spokane.

Anderson, a Cheney High graduate, was born on Christmas Day in 1959. If life was fair, he would have had many, many more birthdays.
