From The Space Review, NASA Administrator Mike Griffin talking at the Heinlein Centennial:

Question: I live about 200 miles down southeast of here, at the home of slapstick living and most of the folks down there are convinced that the Moon landing were a hoax, and wrestling’s real. [Laughter] Do you have any ideas on how to speak to these people?

Griffin: I don’t. [Laughter] [Applause] I mean, what can we say? I mean, all the guys who were still alive and a couple of the ones who are not have all become personal friends of mine, and in the intervening decades. I don’t think they’re lying to me. I just don’t. I don’t know what to tell people who say the Moon landings were a hoax.

Heh. Good for him, But if he needs a couple of pithy soundbites, I know someone who has a passing familiarity with the topic...

Tip of the spacesuit visor to Dan Durda for alerting me to the speech.
