quoting from an AP news release:
CINCINNATI (AP) — Neil Armstrong was a quiet self-described nerdy engineer who became a global hero when as a steely-nerved pilot he made “one giant leap for mankind” with a small step on to the moon. The modest man who had people on Earth entranced and awed from almost a quarter million miles away has died. He was 82.
Armstrong died following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures, a statement Saturday from his family said. It didn’t say where he died.
Actually, he blew the line, leaving out the first article, "a".
<moderator note> I edited the title for a bit more clarity.</>
He'll live for a long time in our minds and in our hearts.
A true American hero.He will be missed.RIP Neil
I have nothing to say. I am devastated.
Neil Armstrong was the man I've always wanted to be.
Cool. Calm. Controled. Capable.
When I was growing up, I happened to go to Space Academy in July 1989. As it was the anniversary of the landing, I got the chance to see the three of them up on stage together. While I knew the significance, I didn't understand the rarity of the moment. It will be something I never forget.
That is so sad. I sat enthralled in front of the tv watching what was probably Neil Armstrong's second first step. He was a major hero and a inspiration of many dreams for children that came true.
After that first step I looked at the moon in a different light.
Now most of my childhood 1960's era heroes are passing. Not many left.
Neil, you've taken your third first step. May you rest in peace.
I remember getting the news of his landing and walking on the moon after returning from a LRRP in Nam. Didn't get to see the footage until I returned stateside. Was very proud after so many Soviet firsts in space. Thanks Neil......R.I.P.
I went to early grade school at a school that was too poor to have a TV. We "watched" at least the first two launches just staring at a shirt pocket transistor radio that the teacher had set on a table in front of the class.
We've lost yet another American Icon.
RIP Mr. Armstrong.
A final Godspeed, Mr. Armstrong.
Rest in Peace & thank you
From what I read about a year ago, that was a blip on the transmission. When a copy of the recording taken from the capsule was reviewed, he did say "a man."
One of the last remaining true American heroes.
Aw, c'mon. Everyone recognizes that as a photoshopped, Kenyan General Declaration.
I think Neil Armstrong is related to John Han****.
Do we need to move this thread to the Laughter Forum?
