Leonard Nimoy Dead at 83

Damn, RIP my friend. Star Trek has provided me a ton of enjoyment and you seemed to be a true ambassador."That's the kind of eminently logical argument that Spock would make and speaks to how being involved in a progressive, socially-conscious series like Star Trek must have helped shape Nimoy's worldview going forward. One of the reasons the franchise has endured is that it imagines a future Earth free of prejudice and strife. Through his life and work on-screen and off, Nimoy sought to make that world of tomorrow possible today."

    Local Boston boy made good.

    Fun fact: Nimoy "invented" the "Vulcan greeting" on Star Trek, based on his memories of growing up in an Orthodox Jewish family in Dorchester. The greeting is a ritual gesture made by Orthodox rabbis, who spread their fingers to create the Hebrew letter shin as they stand in front of the ark holding the Torah. The shin represents the name of "El Shaddai," one of the many names of the Jewish God in the Old Testament.

    Rest in peace and thanks for helping to change so many generations and redefine so many genres, you will be missed Leonard.

    Kaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!
    Intelligence is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.
