First Interracial Kiss on TV

Captain Kirk and Lt. Uhura, William Shatner and Nichelle Nichols respectively, swapped spit in an episode of Star Trek making TV history. I think about Lt. U often these days when I see people in public with their Blue-tooth phone thingies hanging out of their ear. I've stopped trying to tell each one of them that they look ridiculous.

So back to Bill Shatner. Can you believe this guy? Once considered by far the cheesiest guy on TV, for his hammish overacting portrayals of Captain Kirk and the T.J. Hooker. Shatner has been selected for induction into the Television Hall of Fame and consistently recieves Emmy nominations every year for his role as Denny Crane in Boston Legal. He'll also be roasted on Comedy Central later this week. I'm not sure how this happens. I guess he changed, because we all couldn't, could we?

“Remember-you can't beam through a force field. So, don't try it.” -- William Shatner.

That about sums it up, don't ya think?
