Neil Armstrong by Neil Steinberg

Steinberg was at home Saturday afternoon and had just learned of Armstrong’s death from a Facebook post when the Sunday editor at the Sun-Times sent a text message asking him to write the piece. A little more than an hour later, Steinberg turned out a concise and eloquent 892-word essay on a man he considered a true American hero. (As a personal sign of respect to Armstrong, he put the flag out on his front porch.)
