Toronto. …but the man in the moon is a Newfie. So sang Stompin’ Tom in his 1972 response to Neil Armstrong’s epic adventure 50 years ago today when the Ohio native became the first man to walk on the moon.

A tip of the hat to the brave trio of Americans who first ventured around and on the moon a half century ago on Apollo 11: Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Mike Collins. Ironically, the only one not to walk on the moon at that time (he did later) was Mike Collins, the sole survivor today.
