leave a comment »

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors today honored Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin.

According to the meeting agenda, Aldrin was honored because he “reached the vicinity of the Moon, [and]  represents the highest ideals of a seasoned American military officer, American military aviator, American veteran, and American space explorer.”

And the honorary title they gave him? Honorary Consul General to the Moon.
