Lawmakers and advocates on Wednesday called for safeguards to be placed on the domestic use of drones in order to protect the privacy of Americans.
Congress has ordered the Federal Aviation Administration to open up airspace to the unmanned aircraft by October 2015, a decision expected to see thousands of drones criss-crossing the sky within a few years.

Lewis Marvin of Moonfire on The Joe Pyne Show 1966
1966 was a good year for television. Here we have my old friend Lewis Marvin appearing in the “beef box” of all places on the Joe Pyne Show. Lewis was a kind, but somewhat confused, prototype vegan.
