Neil Armstrong has died, which is just sad to me and the whole world. As Richard Hammond from Top Gear tweeted, he was a proper, proper hero. Armstrong seemed like a very good man, a humble man who accomplished astounding things in his life. President Obama has this on his official Tumblr page:

That legacy will endure - sparked by the man who taught us the enormous power of one small step.Yeah that must be why he gutted the manned space program, because he's so inspired by Neil Armstrong's example. Still, the statement is good. The problem is, here's the accompanying image, courtesy The Daily Caller:
