[i]As much as I respect Dean Armstrong, I do not believe his recollection of this is correct.
I spent a great deal of time talking about this issue during my near-60 hours of interviews for my biography of him, FIRST MAN. Neil was the sort of man who never told lies. He might avoid or evade certain questions and answers but he never outright lied. So, he told me quite specifically and emphatically that he did not pre-plan what he would say and came up with the phrase only after the landing. That was what he told me clearly and on tape.
I think we should accept that as true and not a story his brother NEVER has told for 43 years and did not mention to me during my long interview for the book. Why wouldn't he have told that story for his brother's authorized biography?[/i]
