Today lovers of sci-fi and beyond are mourning the loss of Leonard Nimoy, best known for his portrayal of Spock in Star Trek.

I’m not going to claim Trekkie status (is it “Trekkie” or “Trekie”?), far from it. I remember seeing Star Trek in syndication at my grandparents house, where I’d go after school during my early elementary school days.  I really liked the show, and saw the first three movies in the theater... the ear worm thingies in Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan, still give me the willies. But as a kid, I leaned more towards Star Wars.

But, of all the characters in both of those fantastical realms, I think Spock would have been the guy to find a cure for HIV.

And it is Spock’s most famous sentiment that I pass along to you.

Live Long and Prosper,
Shawn
