Hopefully just enough time has passed that I can get away with saying that I like to remember Neil Armstrong the same way Adam McKay did back in 2000: Neil Armstrong - The Ohio Years from Fred Gooltz on Vimeo.
Channeling OFB!? I'm legitimately praising the guy here! I'm not wild about the timing, but, you're right, that took guts and needed to be said a long time ago. No sarcasm. I mean it.
