Sad Day For Trekkies Everywhere

I'm givin' this post everything she's got - but if i push her any harder, the whole thing will blow!

James Doohan, Trek's Scotty, has been beamed up a final time at age 85.

I was just going to accuse Legislative leaders of Scotty-ing this morning, as a matter of fact, after reading so much gloom-and-doom over the probability of compromise removing (constructively) proposals from this November's ballot.

Scotty-ing, for the uninitiated, is the process by which you really dramatize the difficulty of completing a task in time or at all, thereby reaping much praise when you are able to deliver the goods ahead of schedule. This is more clinically referred to as playing the expectations game.

I heard that some of Doohan's ashes will be sent into space (a la Rodenberry) - a well deserved tribute. Live Long and Prosper Scotty, GUY
