    Just heard it on the news that James Doohan died at his Redmond WA home this morning. He was 85 and suffering from pneumonia and Alzheimer?s so it was not unexpected, yet it is still a shock for those of us who grew up watching him grumble at Captain Kirk all these years.

    We'll miss you Scotty.

    He took me under his wing at my very very first convention, back in '77. What a wonderful, fun man. I'm going to miss him, but I'm glad that he is now out of pain.

    Bye Jimmy, thanks again for helping a newbie into the world of fandom. You are going to be missed. :_|

    He was a very kind man the once I met him at TimeCon '86. He was my fav character in the orignal series, too. Farewell, Jimmy. May you go to a better place...
