Woah...

What do you call orbits that aren't polar?  Equatorial?  Whatever they are, they go from the east coast.  It just doesn't do, to drop rocket bits on people...  (A tip for all rocketeers, professional and amateur- don't drop rocket bits on people.)

Others have other options (e.g. Vandenberg)...
