No Death Star For Defense Department
After an online petition to build a planet-destroying "Death Star", the U.S. government has decided against building the "Star Wars" weapon.
The government response even uses some Star Wars language, "This isn't the petition response you're looking for." You can check out the document here.
Here's the link to the Twitter response by Darth Vader, which begins with "A serious mistake, Mr. President" --
