A man who was truly rivaled by none. A man who looked to the stars and went where so few have ever gone. He dared us to dream and challenge what was possible, and now watches over us from the stars he once touched.
Thank you. As soon as I heard the news yesterday a comic of Apollo 11 landing and meeting Luna popped into my mind, and has stuck there as a tribute to him, and your picture is about as perfect a part 2 as I can think of. As sad as this event has made us, we should just remember how great a man he was, and that his influence will be with humanity as long as we are around.
Lance Armstrong is the bicycling guy who got stripped of his Tour De France titles. Vance was one of the Duke Boys' cousins during that season of Dukes of Hazard that was filmed when the regular actors had walked off the set in a contract dispute.
