How did we, as a nation, delude ourselves into accepting, continuing, and now glorifying a transportation system that operated with a 1.5% hull-loss rate? Why haven't we call it out for what it was: an abject failure of design and vision that twice took 7 lives and stagnated spaceflight research/development for 3 decades.
