I read on the BBC news website about a journalist who is trying to find out why Neil Armstrong has been such an enigma for the past 40 years.  After presenting the world with that “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” he’s shunned any fame or publicity associated with the event ever since.  One of the most perplexing things for the journalist to cope with is that he’s constantly refused to discuss his feelings about anything – he’ll stick to facts and that’s all.

Hooray, hooray, hooray!  Rather than try to work out why this man can’t express his feelings and then share them with anyone who’s bored enough to listen, can’t we take a leaf out of his book?  We don’t need to analyse him – he’s normal!

Stop bleating.  Stop gushing.  Stop boasting.  And stop expecting people to be interested.   That applies to the famous and non-famous.
