Buzz Aldrin faces guardianship hearing, dispute with children

Is Buzz Aldrin, the former astronaut who followed Neil Armstrong onto the moon, no longer competent to handle his own affairs?

There's a difficult problem faced by a lot of older Americans. They may genuinely need nursing home care for a period of time -- either after an illness, a surgery or toward the end of their lives. However, they're afraid that if they enter a nursing home that the biggest thing they have of value to pass to their children -- their home -- will end up going to the state as a result.
