Leonard Nimoy 1931-2015 
Saturday, 28 February, 2015, 07:57 AM - Not TFTD
There are some people that are part of your life just because they were famous as you grew up. They provided happy memories of sitting with family and friends watching TV, listening to records, or even being on the cover of a cherished book given to you as a present. They've always been there and you just assume they always will be.

You don't know these people personally, so it comes as a surprise when their passing makes you feel so sad. It feels like a little part of yourself has passed away with them. As one commenter put it "The shining lights that were my childhood heroes are slowly blinking out one by one."

I felt that way about Pavarotti, Patrick Moore, and now today, about Leonard Nimoy. My fascination with Spock didn't quite extend as far as Sheldon Cooper in the Big Bang Theory and I have to admit his singing wasn't really my thing, but every few years Leonard Nimoy would pop up to reprise his roll as Mr. Spock and I knew that the world hadn't quite fallen apart yet.

Goodbye Leonard Nimoy and thank you for those memories. I'm sure I won't be the only one watching some favourite episodes of Star Trek tonight.

Falling off the stage in an extravagant costume is exactly like conducting a church service.

Manchester takes over its own health care today. This is exactly how Catholic social teaching says that public health services should be organised. When it comes to democracy, accountability and transparency, there really is nothing that can't be learned from the Big Book of Magic Stuff.

Mental illness, or as the visible bit of the Invisible Magic Friend more properly called it, "possession by demons", is clearly something that scripture can tell us a great deal about.

Some schoolgirls have been brainwashed by a bunch of religious nutters. How can we deal with this? Let's ask saints Peter and Paul.
