Leonard Nimoy, or Mr. Spock to us baby boomers, passed away today. On my brother’s birthday 😦  He can’t be 83, could he?

Leonard Nimoy, who died on Friday at the age of 83, after succumbing to pulmonary diesease, will be remembered best for his star turn as Mr. Spock, the half-Vulcan, half-human officer, on Star Trek. But his exploits as a hybrid character extended far beyond the USS Enterprise; in addition to acting, Nimoy was a poet, a writer, a sergeant in the U.S. army, a photographer, and a director.


I fondly remember the original 1964 Star Trek TV series.
