And Now, For Something Completely Different… Star Trek: The Rap

 I’m sure that by this time, many of you who have been reading my posts think I’m a humorless, chronically annoyed and frustrated Liberal.

Well, okay… I won’t deny that. I am. Three out of four. But not humorless!

I’m also a longtime science fiction fan and will even  plead guilty to having pointy sideburns for a year when I was in high school. (We’re talking around 1966, when the ST:TOS episodes — Star Trek: The Original Series, in case you didn’t know — were still new, un-rerun and uncut.)

Having been to many science fiction conventions, I can tell you that there is more than a grain of truth to at least some of the stereotypes of obsessive fans focused on obscure, niggling details of some shows, movies or books you’ve never hear of.

I thus point you to the MSNBC story , “Star Trek correction incites Internet nerds“.

Your thoughts are invited.
