Today we lost Leonard Nimoy. You can read obits here and here.

I was affected by it, no question, but I’m not quite sure why. I’m not a huge Star Trek fan, nor was I particularly inspired by him. I do think he was a great actor, and a pretty stand up guy (the less I say about his music career the better). So I can’t quite figure out why news of his passing saddened me.

Maybe it’s because, despite having been typecast to a certain degree as Spock and supposedly resisting it (the man wrote a book called “I Am Not Spock“) he later embraced it (he wrote another book called “I Am Spock“) and was able to laugh at himself and enjoy his life.

In the end, I think Leonard Nimoy was a nice man and maybe why that his passing makes me sad. There aren’t too many nice guys in his chosen business, or in the world in general, and we need more of them in this day and age.

Live long and prosper, Leonard.
