    So sad. Who didn't love Spock? And by all accounts, he was a very nice man. I loved him on Fringe, too. RIP Mr. Nimoy, you will be missed.

    Read Leonard Nimoy's 1968 Words of Wisdom to a Mixed-Race Teen

    Leonard Nimoy, who passed away Friday at the age of 83, was best known for his portrayal of Spock on Star Trek. In addition to the legions of Star Trek fans who revered him, Spock and, by extension Nimoy, was considered a hero by many people who'd ever felt different.

    In 1968, one of those people, a teenaged girl whose mother was black and whose father was white, wrote to Fave magazine asking Spock, who was half-human, half-Vulcan, how he'd handled the rejection of not fitting in. Nimoy was so moved by the letter that he penned a response, which Fave then published the following month. Nimoy's letter is both touching and inspiring.

    "It takes a great deal of courage to turn your back on popularity and to go out on your own," Nimoy writes. "Although inside you're not really like members of the pack, it's still frightening to decide to leave them, because as long as you're popular, you have at least someone to hang around with."

    According to the crawl E! always runs during shows, Shatner can't attend the funeral because he will be at the Red Cross Ball. I don't know how close they were, but he should go.

    Even though he was most well known as Mr. Spock, I'll always remember Mr. Nimoy for In Search Of . . ., a program that sparked my curiosity and set me on a path of curiosity and discovery. I'll also always remember him for the Shekhina Project. RIP, Mr. Nimoy. You were ahead of your time in many ways.

    I'm sure Leonard's family will understand. Shatner is the MC for the charity event being held tonight in Texas and the services are tomorrow morning in LA. He can't get back on time.

    This is really so sad.
    He had such a distinctive voice on his narrations too.
    Heaps of Aussies are so saddened by this, his appeal was universal really.
    Love the Astronauts tribute too....
    RIP wonderful man.

    This is the sweetest thing ever (especially for someone from a deeply fucked up family who could do with an honourary grandfather!)

    It's time like this I kick myself that I'm not on Twitter. Fancy missing that? Would have loved to have been part of his honorary family.
