EDITORIAL: New manned trips to the moon, Mars would be best tribute to Armstrong

-A A +A

The recent death of Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, brings up the question of what would be the best way to honor his memory.

One way we have immortalized some great men is declaring their birthday a national holiday. We have also declared the Monday closest to Oct. 12, the day Christopher Columbus first landed in the New World, a national holiday even though we now know some Viking explorers arrived in the Americas before he did.

So why isn’t Aug. 5, Armstrong’s birthday, or July 20, the date he landed on the moon, a national holiday?
