Sad news. A childhood hero, a character who exemplified rationality and logical thought, has died. Mr. Spock — Leonard Nimoy — was a very human person, in the best possible way. He was an inspiration. Almost twenty years ago, I had a chance to see him along with William Shatner and DeForest Kelly in person. It was a very exciting moment. May God grant him mercy, and eternal peace. Say a prayer for him.
