§ Comment  “Irreverently exploring the nature of heroism and patriotism while irreverently ‘King of the Moon’ defines why being second sucks.”

§ Themes biography, Buzz (Edwin Eugene Aldrin, Jr., American astronaut, second man on the moon, 1930-____), Neil (Neil Alden Armstrong, American astronaut, first man on the moon, 1930-____), fight, first man on the moon, first step, heroism, history, moon, patriotism.
