Twice today, defending Aldrin.

You say all of this as if Col. Aldrin owes you his time. He's
had a long and successful career and I daresay that he doesn't
owe you a lick. I f you have some disagreement with anything
he's said then perhaps you could share it with us on this list,
rather than spout vituperative complaints.

You seem to be most agitated by Aldrin's measured responses (ok,
he speaks damned slower than most). But who's fault is that?
Given that the man has already been the subject of countless
attacks on his character (viz. the idiot Bart Sibrel) why
shouldn't he take his damn time to make sure that what he is
quoted as saying is what he really means?

And I much prefer listening to the likes of Col. Aldrin than
some of the agitated hand-waving that this field unfortunately
draws in.

And, hell - he was discussing something involving what Arthur C.
Clarke declared the most sophisticated technological achievement
at the time: the Saturn V vehicle. Just recently this very list
saw weeks worth of discussion about whether or not what they saw
was actually a part of their rocket. Given all that - and the
fact that he was addressing a decidely lay audience - why the
heck shouldn't he take his time?

ALDRIN: You don't want me to be the jury of all these people
now, do you?

Yes, shows like Larry King Live have unforgiving time
constraints. But any shortcomings that may have brought to
Aldrin's appearance should in no way reflect badly on his
contributions to this subject. Again, if you'd like to complain
about the man then please do so in a way that may be fairly
debated here.

In other word, back it up.
