I got a fan letter from a young lady. It was a suicide note.
So I called her, and I said, “Hey, this is Jimmy Doohan. Scotty, from Star Trek.” I said, “I’m doing a convention in Indianapolis. I wanna see you there.”
I saw her — boy, I’m telling you, I couldn’t believe what I saw. It was definitely suicide. Somebody had to help her, somehow. And obviously she wasn’t going to the right people.
I said to her, “I’m doing a convention two weeks from now in St. Louis.” And two weeks from then, in somewhere else, you know? She also came to New York - she was able to afford to got to these places. That went on for two or three years, maybe eighteen times. And all I did was talk positive things to her.
And then all of the sudden — nothing. I didn’t hear anything. I had no idea what had happened to her because I never really saved her address.
Eight years later, I get a letter saying, “I do want to thank you so much for what you did for me, because I just got my Master’s degree in electronic engineering.”
That’s…to me, the best thing I’ve ever done in my life.
Todos los hombres tienen que escapar en ocasiones del mortífero ritmo de sus pensamientos íntimos. Ello forma parte del proceso de la vida entre los seres pensantes. Es una de las cosas que los distingue del perezoso de tres dedos; en apariencia -uno nunca puede estar seguro- éste se conforma con colgar cabeza abajo de la rama, y ni siquiera le interesa leer a Walter Lippman. No tengo una predilección especial por la novela detectivesca como evasión ideal. Simplemente digo que todo lo que se lee por placer es una evasión, se trate de un texto en griego, de un libro de matemáticas, de uno de astronomía, de uno de Benedetto Croce o de El diario del hombre olvidado. Decir lo contrario es ser un esnob intelectual y un principiante en el arte de vivir.
The Google homepage on October 15 was transformed into an interactive cartoon-strip dreamscape to honor animator Winsor McCay. Believed to be born around 1869 in Michigan, the celebrated animator is best known for creating the comic strip “Little Nemo in Slumberland,” which first ran on this day 107 years ago. (x)
