Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, died last Saturday.  He, his astronaut colleagues and the rest of the moon landing team are an exemplar of what was good about the twentieth century:  courage and technical innovation.  However, what has Armstrong to do with a blog about accounting trivia?  Well, Armstrong was the son of an auditor.  His father, Stephen Armstrong, was an auditor for the Ohio state government.
