James Doohan, 1920-2005

I just saw online that James Doohan died earlier today. I guess Scotty's now been beamed up to that great starship in the sky. Laura and I got to meet him once, briefly, at a book signing near our apartment when we lived in Redmond. (Jimmy Doohan and his family have been living there for some time.) What a great guy, terrific sense of humor, and let's face it, it was Scotty that really made the Enterprise go. I am so tempted to break out my copy of "Relics," the episode he did of ST:TNG and have a good reminisce.
