HOUSTON - For several weeks now a rumor that NASA will be relocating its operations to Detroit has crisscrossed back and forth across the entire length of the country.

Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center Assistant Spokesperson Skipper Flashfiddle, who is filling in for Trent Timmelfarb who is vacationing down in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, said that the rumor has been traced back to a rumor mill located in Calabasas, California.

He said that he wants the American public to know that NASA has no intentions of moving its space operations anywhere, and especially not to Detroit.

Flashfiddle commented that the reason why Detroit would not be a consideration is because the city is bankrupt and as a result they would not be able to pay NASA the $70 million fee that it would require to move out of Houston.

SIDENOTE: Skipper Flashfiddle did want to emphasize that NASA's decision will in no way have any effect on the fact that NASA purchases several space shuttle parts from the Chevrolet auto plant located in Detroit.
