    Hi All,
    I was just listening to the local L.A. channel 7 (ABC) news
    at ~11:28pm, and they announced "breaking news" about a piece
    of burned metal that was found in Joshua Tree, CA that "could
    be a piece of Shuttle Columbia".  I'm not surprised by the
    desire of the average nobody to try to get in the news; what
    shocked me was that the newscasters indicated that officials
    would actually be traveling to Joshua Tree to inspect the
    debris!  I sincerely hope that the TV station was mistaken --
    there is absolutely, positively NO WAY it could be Columbia
    debris!  Joshua Tree is nowhere near the reentry ground track.
    Talk about a waste of human resources and money.  You'd have
    as much chance finding debris from Columbia in Alaska as in
    Joshua Tree.  --Rob
