Sad News

Leonard Nimoy 1931 - 2015

I read today that Leonard Nimoy has passed away aged 83. Yet another person responsible for a chapter of my childhood happiness, now lost to us, though his legacy will forever live on and prosper.

His role in Star Trek was the glue that held everything together (for me at least). The straight man to Kirk and McCoy, the strong mind and body to Kirk's bravado and dashing heroism, and the calm to McCoy's emotive outbursts and humanity. A sad day indeed.
