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

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/27/ar...t-83.html?_r=0

    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.
    Mr. Nimoy announced last year that he had the disease, which he attributed to years of smoking, a habit he had given up three decades earlier. He had been hospitalized earlier in the week.
    Live long and prosper, old friend.

    I think William Shattner (Kirk), Nicole Nicholes (Uhura), George Tekki (Sulu) and I forget the name of the guy who played Chekoff are the lone survivors of STOS.

    I grew up on Spock. Nimoy was also the narrator on "In Search of..." He will forever be part of American culture and the part of something larger than us all - the imagination of the human spirit. Rest in peace Leonard, you're work here is done.

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Everybody hug a Trekkie today. They're not going to be especially stable.

    RIP, Mr. Nimoy.
