    I just heard, Toni. A shock to me, too. He was a wonderful man from a landmark moment in history.

    Look at this lovely quote from the Daily Mail article:

    'I am, and ever will be, a white socks, pocket protector, nerdy engineer.'

    From Ann Curry's facebook today:

    Beautiful message from the family of Neil Armstrong: "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."

    Really lovely, Toni.

    We forget that there are some very accomplished people who don't try to hog the spotlight. They just enjoy doing what they're good at. They're known for their achievements and for their character. I wonder if it will catch on!

    I just realized how ironic: the two men we're talking about this weekend have the same last name, and what a world of difference between them.
