I think the viral news beat has gone a little too far today, and actually broken the news.
One comment from Shatner on Twitter.
I am currently in FL as I agreed to appear at the Red Cross Ball tonight. Leonard’s funeral is tomorrow. I can’t make it back in time.

And the whole webiverse basically forgot that its Leonard’s funeral.
A Google search for “Nimoy funeral” or “When is Leonard Nimoy Funeral” gives a really deep multi-faceted perspective from all sides of the Shatner tweet.
With the News cycle chasing its own tail – poor Leonard is left unable to even have a chance to turn in his grave, forgotten in a mass of nonsensical monotony.
The news is broken because it cannot see past the trend.
So this is a brief tribute to the Cohen who brought his own take on “Shalom” to the Big Screen.
Spock was a mentor for all of us, someone we looked up to for reason and truth in a world of lies.
And William Shatner should not be blamed. It’s not his fault. The Red Cross needed him. Yesterday it was a dress, today it is him… it’s not personal.
But a tad sad.
Here is wishing all of his family a long life.
Live Long and Prosper To All of us.
