I would like to see the Bart Sibrel quote changed[edit]

I noticed that this page isn't editable by me, so I figured I'd come to that talk page. I would like to see the Bart Sibrel quote amended to include the full accusation he made at Aldrin. Currently, it reads that Sibrel called him "a liar and a thief", but I think the article would benefit from the full (and more accurate) quote "You're a coward, and a liar, and a thief." I feel that omission of the the accusation of cowardice doesn't accurately describe the gravity of the situation, considering the risks he had taken.

What day did Armstrong and Aldrin step onto the Moon?[edit]

If you, like me, are one of millions of older Americans living in the Eastern time zone, you probably remember watching this late on July 20, the same day they landed. President Nixon's White House phone log records he spoke to the astronauts just before going to bed, ~11:00 PM.

Watch out, trick question! The WP:WikiProject Spaceflight community has established a consensus (somewhere, it might have been on another talk page) that we should use UTC for off-world events, since no extraterrestrial time zones have yet been established, and of course we wish to avoid regional bias. Since it was after 3 AM London time, it qualifies as July 21 in UTC. Please don't "correct" it to July 20. JustinTime55 (talk) 19:39, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 23 July 2014[edit]

Under section 4 Personal life… the last comment reads “Aldrin is a Freemason, a member of Montclair Lodge # 144 of New Jersey.” I would like the comment to read as “Aldrin is a 50 year Freemason, a member of Montclair Lodge # 144 of New Jersey and Clear Lake Lodge # 1417 of Texas.”

Reference 40 (page 5) already details this information.

Thank you, Travis M. Major Clear Lake Masonic Lodge No. 1417 travismmajor@gmail.com

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. The reference you directed me to stated nothing about being a Freemason for 50 years. —cyberpower ChatOnline 10:22, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
