Sagan said that we were made of "Star Stuff." Tyson on "60 Minutes" reworded it, didn't give credit to Sagan for having invented it. I'm sick of this prima-donna.

Given that Neil deGrasse Tyson recently hosted Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey,
perhaps he felt that when he speaks, people are sufficiently highly conscioous of
Carl Sagan not to have to be pointed to everything he is famous for saying.
