Neil Armstrong, American Great, Dead at 82

Sad news today, Neil Armstrong has died at the age of 82.  He was of course, the first man to walk on the moon.  The Apollo program was a symbol of what the American government can do right - there's less and less of that these days.  Armstrong was part of something great, and his courage (along with that of Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins) as well as the achievement of  the moon landing serve as an inspiration to millions, and should be an inspiration to all people around the world to set lofty goals and work to achieve them.
