The obituaries column in any newspaper, including ours, tends to be pretty sober and sobering.
But from the obits in the Richmond Times-Dispatch yesterday, here’s one that will make you read it twice.
A guy who was 67 passed away. The obit says he “was beamed up by Scottie Friday, August 27, 2010, after a long courageous battle with cancer.”
A serious Trekker? Maybe, but once you learn his name you understand.
His name was Danny Kirk. His nickname: “Captain.”
