Visual Description:  Early casting of the original Star Trek.


Clue/Question: Their choice of Leonard Nimoy to play Spock was this.

Answer:  LOGICAL

(OMG!  Leonard Nimoy really has pointy ears and a Moe Howard haircut???  I’m shocked!  LOL!  Cute.  Gene Roddenberry is spinning in his grave over this one.  And, he could have been, at one point in time, actually.  Gene was one of a few people who have had the their ashes – a portion of them, actually –  “buried” in space.  But, not into deep space.  They were launched into an elliptical orbit around the earth in April of 1997, and were up there until May of 2002.  Not sure what happened upon re-entry.  The rocket they were in likely burned up, but I don’t know.  That would be like being twice cremated!  Kinda like being a twice-baked potato, I guess.  Mmm!  Potatoes!  Not many can claim that.  I suppose if you had a container of your ashes tossed into an active volcano that would be similar . . . but you’d miss out on the ride.  You know, you’d be surprised how many people cannot do the “Live long, and prosper” salute!  It’s a certain kind of hand flexibility thing.  I guess it’s just one of those weird genetic things, like the people who can flex their fingertips backwards.  That always freaked me out!  Maybe, you have to be a bit of a nerd in order to do the Spock “Live long, and prosper” salute. Of course I can do it!  And, I’m just a word-nerd.  Oh, well.

No new clue words, today.  They were all jumbled well, but I didn’t struggle with any of them.  Same with the answer letters.  Nice layout, but the answer was . . . well, you know!  Hey, Jeff!  I didn’t realize that Bob Eubanks was being considered for the role of Spock!  LOL!

Sorry this is a day late, gang.  I was hoping to post it last night, a little after 11:30, but the Wizards of WordPress wuz kinspiring agin me!  I’d click on the New Post menu selection, but the little doohickey in the corner just kept a spinnin’ and spinnin’!  I even shut it all down and tried again, but to no avail.  It was late.  I’d had a six hour drive, and I was too tired to try to wait it out, so I went to bed.  You can rest assured though that Yer Uncle Rave solved this, and the cryptoquote, on the day that it was published.  I did not get the answer from today’s paper.  That would be sad, but I would admit it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Of course, Jeff and David had a good reason for the subject matter being published on 3/26.  See the first and the last Related Articles!   —   YUR
