    Leonard Nimoy dead at 83

    Leonard Nimoy, Spock of ‘Star Trek,’ Dies at 83

    Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut “Star Trek,” died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles. He was 83.


    His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed his death, saying the cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

    damn.
    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    It was just announced on Fox News Radio Sirius XM Channel 114 that iconic actor Leonard Nimoy has died of COPD at age 83.

    Live Long and Prosper.

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.

    Trekkies around the world will freakout when they hear this.

    No more appearances on big bang theory either.

    RIP.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    You don't get a medal for switching alliances just before the result, as it becomes apparent the other team is set to win.

    Condolences to his family and friends and to all us Star Trek fans who will miss him too. I do wish that he had come out sooner concerning his COPD but I can also understand his need and desire for privacy. This is a horrid progressive disease that needs more attention and knowledge put out to the general public.

    Mr. Spock not Dr. Spock. He didn't write books on raising kids.
