117:58:55 GNC reactions to newspapers after the landing


117:58:55 to 118:00:55 GNC reactions to newspapers after the landing
(It sounds like the newspaper may have been displayed in the MOCR on "Channel 65".  Would that have been one of the channels the flight controllers could have selected to view on their monitors?)
“You ought to see the paper.”
General discussion about the newspaper
“Is it on sale downstairs?” “Sorry I didn’t pick one up.”
“Our helper over here says if you want to buy about 50 of those things, can you imagine what they will be worth about 50 years from now? Oh boy.”
“Hell, they’ll probably be worth about a dime.”

Imagine my reaction as I was listening to these words exactly 50 years from when they were said.
