  1. Buzz Aldrin is an amazing human being.

    BUT, anyone can become cranky unreasonable old person, even him.

    Alzheimer’s (and perhaps Namenda side effects) turned my Mom into a MEAN and quite different person, before her brain unravelled.

  2. It is great that Buzz Aldrin is still around and kicking. I was unable to view the video here in China. However none of us is perfect, and nothing should diminish the respect and admiration we have for him.

    About 20 years ago I was blessed to have the honor of working with Neil Armstrong from time to time. He was incredibly modest, down to earth (ironically), and a very private person. Men like Armstrong and Aldrin are/were the epitome of the “right stuff.” Would I rather work with Neil Armstrong or any president of the United States? No contest. There is only one person in the history of the world who was the first to land a craft and walk on an extraterrestrial body.
