My first, and lifelong crush. I remember crying at age 12, thinking about the day I would hear this news. Having seen how Leonard Nimoy lived long,
and prospered, it is easier to say farewell.
You made it cool to be a geek. That was a lifeline for more of us marginal folk than you could ever have known, but for each oddball spirit who
actually wrote to you, there were many, many more of us who silently sent, and continue to send, thanks for legitimizing our quirks. And that was
Leonard Nimoy - not Spock - that modeled that for us.
A little logic has left our homeworld today - and a hell of a lot of humanity. Rest among your fellow stars, Leonard Nimoy. And thanks.
