The second human to set foot on the Moon is going to appear on Dancing with the Stars, a (somewhat) popular “reality” television show in the USA. Buzz Aldrin, 80 years old, is going to be a contestant on the show.
I had a hard time believing it when I heard it, thinking that “it must be a different Buzz Aldrin!” I had to search online to confirm what I had heard.
One question comes to my mind …”why?” A comment he made during an interview with Zap2it, according to Smithsonian.com, might help to answer that question: “Living on Air Force retirement and Social Security, I’m forced to go out and sing for my supper quite a bit.”
It is regrettable that a national hero feels the pinch to the extent that he participates in a show that he might not otherwise have considered.
