Yep, not perfect (I'd prefer the Uranus orbiter and the Nepture / KBO flyby) but I understand the rationale.
Something has got to happen soon, or just about everyone on this board will be pushing up daisies before we return to the outer solar system.

Thanks for the info, my friend. I hear you in that I do hope something does happen soon as I'm 51 and if it doesn't, I'll be pushing up daisies like you said. It would be a dream come true, a proper exploration of Uranus & Neptune.
