William Shatner in L.A., too late for Nimoy funeral


“Star Trek” legend William Shatner transported himself to Los Angeles Sunday — but he still came off as Capt. Jerk by missing Leonard Nimoy’s funeral by a couple of hours.

Shatner, 83, landed at Los Angeles International Airport at about 11:30 a.m., two-and-a-half hours after family and friends mourned the actor known as Mr. Spock.

Nimoy’s private traditional Jewish service was reportedly held at 9 a.m. Sunday at an undisclosed location in Hollywood.

Shatner, who considered Nimoy a close friend, said Saturday that he was ditching the funeral to stay in Florida to attend a charity event.

But Shatner didn’t bother to take an earlier flight, or even hit warp drive, to attend the rites.
Mr. Shatner was at a charity event that would help thousands.

A reminder from Spock quoting one of his most notable sayings:

"The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few."

And had Shatner taken an earlier flight to attend the funeral, those same writers at msn would have needed to publish their alternate article titled:

"Shatner crashes Nimoy funeral, turns it into a Star Trek circus"

I'm quite sure that they were fully prepared for either possibility with an article ready to go for each of them.
