Moon, Mars, and Beyond was not so bad

I think the Moon and it's environ's should be the near term focus. While eventually we want to go to Mars with people (and perhaps asteroid missions in deep space before hand), I believe the lessons to be learned to do those other things successfully will occur best at the Moon. To do otherwise risks the failed path of "Flags and Footprints". We need to build up a sustainable infrastructure and we do that by going at the Moon.
