A Matter Of Opinion

Forty years later

This probably isn't the first time you've thought about it, but what do you remember about the moment Armstrong stepped on the moon. Me, I was with my wife and a few other people in Sue and Charlie Mitchell's apartment in an old house on Corbin Park. (Sue was a fellow reporter for the Spokane Daily Chronicle where I'd started work about three months earlier.) I seem to recall a few of us went out and ran a lap or two around the park while waiting for the big moment. That's fuzzy, though. Mainly I remember being awed by what I was seeing.
