@Tony Japanese What did Armstrong do at the Motown Anniversary special?

@Into the Sky with Diamonds I read that as a pun on Michael Jackson's infamous moonwalk at the Motown Anniversary Special.

@Ron Nasty Thanks - just googled it. Didn't realize that was when MJ introduced his (very brief) moonwalk.

Good news on the "uplifting" front.

For your listening pleasure, the (completely re-worked) audiobook version of Into the Sky with Diamonds is now available on Audible (and will be available where "all fine books are sold" as of August.) The 4th edition of the print version is also just out.

[Thanks again to Ron Nasty, of course]
