Mr. Spock Is Not In Hock


Clipped from the Monday, December 18, 1978 edition of the Hollywood, FL SUN-TATTLER, this "cleverly" titled article soothed the fan's fears that Nimoy might be holding a sign up beside the road reading "will raise eyebrow for food."

Although later he did apparently need to supplement his between-Trek-movie periods by chauffeuring around 1980's girl-bands.

"... chauffeuring around 1980's girl-bands ..."

Nimoy knew a good gig when he saw it ;-)

I keep checking in and you keep bringing the past back from oblivion. You are the real Guardian of Forever. I'm a scan-man too, and to prevent show-thru on thin paper like newsprint, I put a flat black sheet of construction paper, or anything black, behind the page being scanned. It will absorb the bounce-back of light that carries the show-thru image. This is the single most valuable secret of scanning. Forget the scanner lid and lay a black sheet over the page. But man, keep up the good work!

Those are bad headlines, but we'll most likely have to give the writers a break. Most newspapers have headline writers. The writers are sometimes as horrified by the headlines as the readers!

Robert,

Thanks for the comment! Now, see, that's something I didn't know. I assumed it was always the article writer. But one thing's for sure... SOMEONE'S to blame for it! :) I think some of the title writers must have moonlighted for The National Enquirer!
