“A solar eclipse. The cosmic ballet goes on.”*

So I feel that I should mention that Leonard Nimoy died. He was 83.

Clearly the man did not take himself too seriously. This is always a good thing.

Although I was never a particularly big fan of Nimoy or Mr. Spock for that matter, it is nevertheless sad to see another familiar star pass away.

I suggest we all watch the “Marge vs. the Monorail” episode of The Simpsons (season 4, episode 12) tonight.

It is a classic, one of the Top 5 best episodes, and stars the late great Phil Hartman as Lyle Lanely, as well as Leonard Nimoy. It was written by Conan O’Brien.

And, of course, don’t forget to raise a toast to our favorite Vulcan. Live long and prosper.
