(From the liner notes) "The successful flight of Apollo 11 has brought honor to the astronauts, to the U.S., and to all of mankind. Yet it cost the people of the United States 24 billion dollars. And it cost the country the lives of three of its finest men, Astronauts Virgil "Gus" Grissom, Roger Chaffee, and Edward White, who were killed in a tragic training accident. This record, then, is dedicated to all those who have worked so long and so hard to help turn man's age-old dream of setting foot on the moon into reality, and is issued in commemoration of the flight of Apollo 11."

We're going to switch lanes here real quick and delve into an album that helped form the soundtrack of my high-school life back in the early 80's. There was some buzz on the Exotica list about early-80's punk awhile back, so I figure this is fair game - sure, it ain't TSOL or Shattered Faith, but this is the punk rock of my youth as a bored kid with a new driver's license, and it's what I loved.
