Milky Way Bar and Grill

From the Associated Press...

After creating the most detailed analysis yet of what the Milky Way looks like, astronomers say a long bar of stars cuts on an angle through the center of the galaxy that includes the sun and planet Earth.

Some scientists have suspected the presence of the stellar bar, but the survey led by two Wisconsin astronomers shows the bar is far longer than previously believed, and at a specific angle.

Hmmm, interest in NASA is waning in the aftermath of too many troubled shuttle missions. The “Cheese Council” jokingly brags that while rumors of the moon being made of cheese abounded previous to the moon missions, once it was confirmed it wasn't made of cheese, people stopped going there. Now astronomers are claiming there's a bar at the center of the Milky Way?

Talk about your transparent marketing schemes. Come on guys. What next half-naked women on mars?
