So tired. So very, very tired.

I don't really see why. If a successful man dies of natural causes at age 82, it isn't exactly a tragedy. Everyone dies eventually.
I remember when my then-girlfriend told me that Heinlein had died. She expected me to be devastated, but it didn't really affect me. He, too, was in his 80's, and had a long and successful career, and a long and very happy marriage, and it isn't really given to most of us to do that well. I didn't expect him to live forever, and it wasn't a huge shock when he finally died.

Steven, I think CXT was picking up on my love of space, spaceflight and space exploration. Armstrong is somewhat well-known for that... and yes, it's not a tragedy, but it is a loss.
