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.
