Leonard Nimoy, RIP :`(

There are so many things to be said about Leonard Nimoy. I've sure you've seen some of them--the Internet fairly exploded today with the sad news of his death. This commercial, featuring Leonard and Zachary Quinto (old Spock and new Spock) combined a passing of the torch, the "Bilbo Baggins" song, and a man who had lived so long and so well, and still had so much to give.

Many people, especially on Twitter, are appending news of Leonard's death with the hashtag #LLAP, for "Live Long and Prosper." I prefer IDIC--Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations. Leonard's life was a lovely example of this philosophy, and I'm very glad he shared it with his fans.
