Hangar One needs our help

Over on Google Plus, Max Trescott reminds us that the historic airship hangar “Hangar One” is in a very precarious state:

If you’re in Silicon Valley and look at the south end of Hangar One at Moffett Field, you’ll see that a large amount of siding has been removed, exposing the hangar’s inner framework to the elements. Unfortunately, the $32 million from Congress to re-side the hangar has run into resistance, which isn’t surprising in the current environment.
