I like to think that he's now a-sittin' on a treasure of silver and gold, a-puffin' on his pipe in the great hobbit-hole in the sky.

Perhaps it's there he's also found Bigfoot.

*sigh* Another icon gone.

I don't know much about Leonard Nimoy the man, but if the majority of the world thought like Mr. Spock, the universe would be ours!

I wonder what Leonard would make of this.

First,
Oregon Rep. Bill Post (R) says he is Oregon’s biggest Star Trek fan. On the floor of the Oregon Legislature, Post delivered a tribute to Nimoy, but unlike President Obama’s tribute, Post’s was self-serving and political.

“Today,” Post said, “is a sad day in history. Today, the greatest Republican in the history of the galaxy, passed away. He was a legal alien who believed in prosperity.”

Then Obama said he loved Spock.

As if on cue, conservatives have lined up to re-remember Spock as basically a pointy-eared version of what they believe Obama to be. Matthew Continetti, a writer for the conservative paper The Washington Free Beacon, summed up the sentiments with an astoundingly sad article titled “I Don’t Love Spock.”

“I am also a Star Trek fan, but I admit I was somewhat confused by my rather apathetic reaction to Nimoy’s death. And as I thought more about the president’s statement, I realized he identifies with the very aspects of the Spock character that most annoy me. I don’t love Spock at all.”
