    EDIT: A little off topic, sorry...

    Or like Dustin Hoffman in Little Big Man?
    Now there's a possibility....
    I had a great mental image of Sam Elliot finishing the movie out with "Kirk abides..."

    I just looked at the Pez website, and they mentioned they'll be marketing a series of "Star Trek" Pez dispensers as a tie-in with the new movie. Unfortunately, they're a little slow on the updates, because they still list the film's premiere date as December 25, 2008. Evidently, no one's told them yet that it's been moved back to early next May....

    That's cool! Mr. Nimoy's a very nice man. I got to meet him back in March of 1979 when he came out to College of DuPage to talk about his one-man play, "Vincent," about the artist Vincent van Gogh (he was doing that play at the Paramount Arts Center in Aurora at the time). I got his autograph on a poster of Mr. Spock I had, as well as a copy of his first book, "I Am Not Spock."
    BTW, what was Mr. Nimoy here for? I wish I'd known sooner; I'd have gone to meet him again if possible.

    He was taping a guest appearance on the NPR news quiz show, Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!

    Mrs. c & I got a chance to meet Nimoy around 1975 when he appeared at a Boston College function in NYC. He's a 1953 graduate.

    Thanks for the info, campy. It's great to be able to meet our favorite performers from time to time, isn't it?

    That's pretty cool, campy! I got to meet him back in 1992, at a convention at the Palace of Auburn Hills (he was doing the con tour with Shatner at the time).
