Once when I was in my early teens my best friend and I were sitting at night on a park bench having one of our intense conversations. I don’t remember what brought it about but we made a solemn promise to  meet again at the same place on the same date at night, in ten years’ time.   I was...

I saw Buzz Aldrin last week, for the first time in my life.  Of course you know who he is: the second person to step foot on the Moon.  Nowhere in recent American lore are there people more truly and incontrovertibly heroes than the Apollo astronauts.  Volunteering to get shot into space in a metal...
