The Picture of the Day today (well, actually, tomorrow — guess it’s GMT) on Wikipedia is a great newsreel about Chuck Yeager’s breaking the sound barrier on October 14, 1947.

Yeager, now in his mid-eighties, is a supporter of right-wing right-to-life Congressmensch Duncan Hunter, who supported a bill that allows parents to sue pornographers for imperiling their children. For further reading: My Right Wing Childhood Heroes, Volume Eleventy-Seven.
