re: Leonard Nimoy Has Gone To The Final Frontier

Aged 83, he was taken to the hospital earlier this week and treated for lung disease.
He suffered from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, despite quitting smoking 30 years ago.

Wonderful man, and so inspiring. Thank you, Kira, for the links! I don't Twitter, but I went there to see what he was saying, and found these two that I liked a lot:

A sad day. But I am all the better for what he gave to this life.

Nimoy lived long and prospered and touched millions in the hopes they would do the same. What a great fellow! =)

Honor and fun,
Dann a.k.a. Gori

I feel so sad at this news. He was a great actor and inspired many.

re: Leonard Nimoy Has Gone To The Final Frontier

One of giants indeed, time for some Auden paraphrasing...

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He Is Dead,
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can ever come to any good
