Blast From The Past

Wednesday, April 10, 2002


What about Scientologists?
Jonah Goldberg, a smart aleck after my own heart, observed recently that there were no Muslims in Star Trek, which spawned the expected rush of "Trekkie" repsonses, including:
Q: Why are there no Muslims on "Star Trek"?
A: Because it's set in the future.

My late father used to tell that joke but used 'The Jetsons" and black neighbors. Redneck that he was.

I love that Star Trek joke!

On another note, my late friend Lewis J Elfstone used to say that his favorite episode of Star Trek was when Spock flipped open his communicator and said, "Would you beam me down a mirror and a razorblade please, Captain? According to my scanners, this planet's almost all cocaine!"
