Neil Armstrong has died at age 82:
A statement from Armstrong’s family suggests his death was caused by complications of recent heart surgery. The family also left the world with this advice:
For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple request. Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink.

Evidently, I rock!
Why not question something for a change?

Bummer.

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Thanks to Ophelia Benson I am now aware of 29-year-old rumors about Armstrong that just won't die.

I posted the news on facebook, and the one real comment was "he was a very good actor."

Sigh...

From what I've heard there is better evidence of him being agnostic or even atheist. Nothing firm and nothing I can specifically remember, just a few general statements about his outlook on life.
