Rest In Peace, Young Moonwalker...

By now I'm sure you've all heard the news...

Neil Armstrong, first person to walk on moon, dies at 82
Neil Armstrong, the U.S. astronaut who was the first person to set foot on the moon, firmly establishing him as one of the great heroes of the 20th century, has died. He was 82.

Armstrong died following complications from cardiovascular procedures, his family announced Saturday.

The first person to walk on the moon has passed on. The space program, conceived by John F. Kennedy in the early 1960s as a race against the Soviets, put Armstrong on the moon in less than 9 years. It's been almost 11 years since September 11th and we still haven't re-built the twin towers. Although, to be fair, we did send an SUV to Mars to warm their climate...

Requiescat in pace, Mr. Armstrong.

That is all.

NBC's original headline referred to him as "Neil Young".

But remember folks, they are "real journalists" with layers of "editorial oversight" and "fact-checkers".

Not like the internet.
