    How cool was that?!

    That's one way to try to knock some sense into rude conspiracy nuts...he's the Bob Barker of astronauts...
    By the forests, behind the guns/In the streets and in the houses/Between the tanks, by the roadside/At the hands of the men, of the women, of the children/In the cold, in the dark, in hunger....

    Now he needs to do what Caroll O'Conner did and go on TV call the guy names and ask to be sued for slander.

    I heard this clown tried to take Buzz to court, and the judge gave him the heave-ho...


    I love it when a judge has a moment of clarity and tells some jackass he had it coming...

    Lunar lunacy

    By COLETTE BANCROFT, Times Staff Writer
    St. Petersburg Times
    published September 29, 2002




    It was one small punch for a man, but it made the news.

    On Sept. 9, former astronaut Buzz Aldrin, 72, one of the two men who made the first landing on the moon in 1969, landed a fist on the jaw of filmmaker Bart Sibrel, 37.

    Aldrin had gone to a hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., for what he had thought was an interview with a Japanese TV show. Instead, he was confronted by Sibrel, who operates a video production company in Nashville and has made a career out of perpetuating the notion that NASA's Apollo moon missions were hoaxes.

    As he's done before to several Apollo astronauts, Sibrel tried to get Aldrin to swear on a Bible that he had really been on the moon.

    Aldrin's lawyer, Robert O'Brien, said the next day that the 6-foot-2, 250-pound Sibrel forced Aldrin up against a wall and refused to let him leave, so Aldrin launched the punch in self-defense. (On Sept. 21, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office announced it would not file charges against Aldrin, saying that he had been provoked into hitting Sibrel.)

    Sibrel told reporters he had confronted Aldrin twice before but didn't expect to get clocked this time.

    "I was very surprised that he hit me. I thought it was very foolish of him to do it in front of two video cameras," Sibrel said. "He has a good punch. It was quick, too. I didn't see it coming."

    About those video cameras: Sibrel's stock in trade is A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon, a "documentary" sold in VHS and DVD on his Web site (Moon Hoax DVDs, Videos And Information, Historic Apollo 11 Footage). The movie expounds on the theory that the moon landings weren't moon landings at all but special-effects movies shot in terrestrial studios and broadcast to a duped world as the astronauts circled the earth in low orbit until time for splashdown.

    When Sibrel ambushed Aldrin in Beverly Hills, he was shooting footage for his next film. That punch was likely the stuff of Sibrel's dreams.

    Buzz cleaned his clock ! Good for him. That's what should happen when you talk to someone like the guy was talking to Buzz.

    How did he get the crackers and wine in the suit?

    Good for Buzz, what a way to exercise his right to "free speech"!

    Wasn't Buzz Aldrin the one who was a Marine and had 3 Navy Crosses, or am I getting my history mixed up?
