Leonard Nimoy, Actor, Director, and 'Star Trek' Icon, Dies at 83
Not unexpected, given his age and health, but still sad. His iconic role as Spock has played an enormous role in my life, in terms of my stoicism in the face of adversity and sardonic humor, as well as not allowing my emotions to control me. Spock made me feel it was OK to be smart and interested in science and that I didn't need to pretend to be stupid in order to be accepted by others.
