Wanted: Mechanic who can get space shuttle to fly (without exploding)

Yesterday NASA postponed the flight of the space shuttle Discovery because of a malfunction in a fuel sensor that engineers thought they had fixed a month ago.

"All I can say is, Shucks," said N. Wayne Hale, the shuttle program's deputy manager. "We ran out of gas."

If by "gas" he meant "competence," we would have to agree.
