According to DRUDGE, NASA is talking about sending John Glenn into space

star-bound heroes, i offer this classic gem:

>When Apollo Mission Astronaut Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon,
he not
>only gave his famous "one small step for man, one giant leap for
>statement but followed it by several remarks, usual com traffic between
>the other astronauts and Mission Control. Just before he re-entered the
>lander, however, he made the enigmatic remark "Good luck Mr. Gorsky."
>people at NASA thought it was a casual remark concerning some rival
>Cosmonaut. However, upon checking, there was no Gorsky in either the
>or American space programs. Over the years many people questioned
>as to what the "Good luck Mr. Gorsky" statement meant, but Armstrong
>just smiled.
>Just last year, (on July 5, 1995 in Tampa Bay FL) while answering
>following a speech, a reporter brought up the 26 year old question to
>Armstrong. This time he finally responded. Mr. Gorsky had finally died
and so
>Neil Armstrong felt he could answer the question.
>When he was a kid, he was playing baseball with a friend in the
backyard. His
>friend hit a fly ball which landed in the front of his neighbor's
>windows. His neighbors were Mr. & Mrs. Gorsky. As he leaned down to
pick up
>the ball, young Armstrong heard Mrs. Gorsky shouting at Mr. Gorsky.
>sex! You want oral sex?! You'll get oral sex when the kid next door
>on the moon!"
>True story.
