James Doohan Dead at 85

I am so sad to hear this, though I'm sure it's a mercy, given that he was suffering with Alzheimer's. I remember the last time he came to Dragon*Con, and he announced that it was indeed his final visit. He kind of made it clear he was saying goodbye, and while I never hung out much with the Trekkies, it was clear how sad many of them were, and how touched by his desire to connect with the fans one last time. He seemed like a kindly fellow.

He will be missed.
