Public memorial service set for Neil Armstrong

Public service for Armstrong

The nation will have a chance to say goodbye to Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, in a memorial service at the Washington National Cathedral on Sept. 13. The 10 a.m. service will be broadcast live on NASA Television and streamed on the websites of the cathedral and space agency. It will be open to the public on a first come, first-served basis. But reservations still must be made through NASA. Armstrong died Aug. 25 and had a private service in Ohio on Friday.

Spanish TV back to live bullfights

Spain's state TV will start airing live bullfights again after the new conservative government lifted a six-year ban on the tradition. The first fight will be broadcast on the widely watched this evening from the northern city of Valladolid. It's a big victory for pro-bullfighting forces. The live transmissions were halted in 2006 by Spain's previous Socialist administration, which said they were costly and coincided with youth TV viewing hours.

Intruder killed by 92-year-old

A 92-year-old farmer and World War II veteran who fatally shot an intruder in his Kentucky home said in an interview that he had no fear of the man and aimed his rifle "right for his heart." Earl Jones told the Kentucky Enquirer that he shot the man after he broke into his home early Monday in northern Kentucky's Boone County. "I didn't go to war for nothing," he said. "I have the right to carry a gun. That's what I told the police."
