Leonard Nimoy, as Mr. Spock, was a major hero in my childhood. The TV show Star Trek was on 1966-1969, which were my years in high school at Vista High, San Diego County. As a Marine Corps brat, I moved every 2 or 3 years, so it was handy having high school in one place. My goal of being a Math Major was strongly supported by the totally logical character of Mr. Spock.
Glen and I were in Hanalei, Kauai when we learned of Leonard Nimoy's passing, the day after Glen's birthday. Later learned that Glen and I were married on LM's birthday. Cosmic
Being in Kauai gave me lots of time to reflect. Since I always travel with computers and movies, we spent a stormy day inside watching JJ Abrams "Star Trek" movie which features Spock Prime, Leanard Nimoy, and new Spock player by Zachary Quinto.
Keeping a compendium of the great online sites I find
Very nicely organized and kept up to date with treasures such as the statement by President Obama on Nimoy's passing https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2015/02/27/statement-president-passing-leonard-nimoy
"Long before being nerdy was cool, there was Leonard Nimoy," Obama said in a statement released by the White House Friday after Nimoy's death. "Leonard was a lifelong lover of the arts and humanities, a supporter of the sciences, generous with his talent and his time. And of course, Leonard was Spock. Cool, logical, big-eared and level-headed, the center of Star Trek's optimistic, inclusive vision of humanity's future.
"I loved Spock," Obama said.
Obama said he met Nimoy in person in 2007. "It was only logical to greet him with the Vulcan salute, the universal sign for 'Live long and prosper.' And after 83 years on this planet – and on his visits to many others – it's clear Leonard Nimoy did just that. Michelle and I join his family, friends, and countless fans who miss him so dearly today."
