"A Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills review team composed of parents and teachers has suggested removing Neil Armstrong from a 'science strand' in a 5th grade social studies book," writes Eric Berger, blogging for the Houston Chronicle.
At issue: The review team says the first man on the moon was not a scientist.

Batman's a scientist, Neil Armstrong isn't. Hate to break it you all, but Neil Armstrong is famous for acting...the fake moon landing and all.

The further we get from 1969, the less prominent he will be as a name.
