Before I go, a moment of silence:
* R.I.P. two legends of the Star Trek universe: film director Joseph Pevney ("Amok Time,” “City on the Edge of Forever,” “The Trouble with Tribbles,” “Journey to Babel”), and the man who created the most memorable Star Trek music theme in history, the Emmy winning and Oscar-nominated composer Alexander Courage. Read "Joseph Pevney & Alexander Courage Remembered " here.
* R.I.P. Emmy Winning Actor Harvey Korman.
And a note of general interest (complete with pictures): "Vatican Opens Pagan Tombs Under St. Peter's."
"The real origin of science fiction lay in the seventeenth-century novels of exploration in fabulous lands. Therefore Jules Verne's story of travel to the moon is not science fiction because they go by rocket but because of where they go. It would be as much science fiction if they went by rubber band."
- Philip K. Dick
