There is a documentary on BBC of Neil Armstrong that has been catching some beef, not the documentary itself but whether or not Neil Armstrong lied about his moon landing speech. In case you don’t realize, Neil Armstrong was an American Astronaut who happened to be the first person to ever walk on the moon. Neil Armstrong passed away late August, and now that the BBC documentary is airing there is some beef about whether his moon landing speech was improvised or not.

Since Neil Armstrong is not alive to speak for his own self, his brother Dean is now dealing with interviews citing that Neil’s speech was draft up before the Apollo mission in 1969. All of this debate is over one word “a”, citing that Neil’s original speech written on paper was to say “That’s one small step for a man” versus the “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” which has been documented.

My opinion on all of this mumble jumble is that who really cares, Neil Armstrong is not here to cite whether or not his speech has been transcribed incorrectly or not and the fact remains he was the first man to walk on the moon so why does the media, once again, have to make such hype over such simple things?

I guess I am simple minded in that I feel there are way more important things to worry about, I feel our society is way too politically correct and we need to leave well enough alone sometimes.

    I saw the headlines, and I agree w/you, leave well enough alone. Walking on the moon was amazing regardless.
