A wise man once said: “Enough is enough. Shit, or get off the pot.” Facebook is the communal toilet of modern society, and I’ve finally decided it’s time for me to park one last brick on it, then say my goodbye. I’m deleting Facebook. Read on if you want to know more, but that’s the meat of the post.
Leonard Nimoy died today after a long and fruitful life. I didn’t know him. I knew his work and the characters he so richly brought to life.
He helped shaped my world view through his portrayal of Spock, and I’m a better person for it.
“Popularity is the very crumbs of greatness,” he quoted in a commencement address he delivered in 2012. He was a great actor and a fine human being, and I feel small today from the knowledge that he is gone. The world is a bit darker today.
LLAP, Mr. Nimoy. Thank you.
