First Slice 8/26/12: R.I.P., Neil Armstong

Neil Armstrong, looking legit
1. Neil Armstrong, the first person to walk on the Moon, died last night. The Ohio native, who interestingly boasted the most valuable autograph on the collectors' circuit, was 82. The Economist has the best obituary about the spaceman we've read thus far.

2. Morris Brown College has filed for bankruptcy to stave off creditors and prevent the 131-year-old historically black college in Vine City from being foreclosed.

3. ParkAtlanta and 11 Alive's Commuter Dude really just need to lock themselves in a steel cage and brawl until one person's left standing or they fall in love.

4. Good news: State health officials have eliminated its waiting list for HIV/AIDS medication. Bad news: there's no guarantee it won't come back.

5. Michael Steele, the former Republican National Committee chief (who, might we add, was absolutely hilarious), is still catching hell from elephants even though he stepped down in January 2011. The issue: picking hurricane-prone Florida as the site for the 2012 convention.
