"James Doohan, who fielded the request "Beam me up" as the starship Enterprise's engineer Scotty in the tar Trek science-fiction television series and subsequent films, has died. He was 85. Doohan died of pneumonia and Alzheimer's disease at his home in Redmond, Washington, this morning, the Associated Press reported, citing his agent Steve Stevens. His wife was with him, AP said. The actor also suffered from Parkinson's disease, diabetes and lung fibrosis and used a wheelchair."


This week I've been mostly eating . . . minestrone soup.
