Ok --lets see if you have this correct, my taxes probably paid for some his education, paid his salary while in the military, paid for the planes he flew, paid for a trip to the moon.  Now he wants to get paid for an autograph?  Have I got that right?

Buzz Aldrin, Scott Carpenter, Ed Michel and Bruce Candless will be at the 
Autographica Event Radisson Edwardian Hotel Heathrow London  
14-16th October 2011.  

When Buzz visted the National Space Centre in Leicester England a year or two 
ago he gave a lecture but did not sign autographs, as far as I know he rarely 
does. This is a good oportunity if you like that sort of thing. There is an 
admission charge and you have to pay Buzz and the others for their autographs. 
The small print on the advertisement says, guests apprance is subject to work 
commitments, guests may not be signing on both days, check the web site for 
details. See www.autographica.co.uk 

I have no personal or business connection with this event but I was very 
grateful to them bringing for creating the opportunity a few years ago to meet 
and get the autograhs of several Russian cosmonauts including Alexi Leonov and 
Valentina Tereshkova. Those are treasured memories.
