Billions of Planets

According to an AP story in Sunday’s Times Union, there are billions of planets in our galaxy. More importantly:

At least 500 million of those planets are in the not-too-hot, not-too-cold zone in which life could exist.

Intriguing thought, huh?

It’s good to know that when our property tax rates officially reach “astronomical” levels, at least there are plenty of planets that we could escape to.

We’d just have to overcome that whole traveling faster than the speed of light thing. But that’s gotta be easier than convincing a majority of our current politicians to lower taxes, right?
