Pegg looks pretty good in that pic.

DS9’s Armin Shimerman To Guest-Star In Castle Episode Directed By TNG's Jonathan Frakes

I"ve been watching Warehouse13. It's cool to see Brent Spiner, Rene A and Kate Mulgrew in that show.

Lots of Trek Men out and about! I have been enjoying Warehouse 13, too. And of course, Artie has a Star Trek connection, too. He was the collector who "kidnapped" Data in the first episode I can remember where Data lied.

That's a terrific episode.

I agree! When Artie was threatening to shoot Brent's character, I was like "Why not? He shot you already!"

It must be weird to face the same actor in a different role.

On Thursday night, the former Emmy-winning host and producer of “Reading Rainbow,” Levar Burton (pictured right), blasted GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney for his Big Bird remarks about cutting funding to non-profit television station PBS.

This week while debating President Barack Obama, Romney said to nonexistent moderator Jim Lehrer, who is also the executive editor of PBS’ “NewsHour,” “I’m sorry Jim, I’m gonna stop the subsidy to PBS. I like PBS. I love Big Bird. I actually like you too. But I’m not gonna keep on spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for it.”

On Soledad O’Brien‘s (pictured above) “Starting Point,” Burton vented that Romney’s comments were an attack on children, especially the disenfranchised:

“I couldn’t believe the man actually fixed his mouth to say that. I interpreted it as an attack on children, Soledad…an attack on children who come from a disenfranchised, you know, background.”

To Burton, PBS shows, such as “Sesame Street,” provide lower-income children with access to education and information that they normally wouldn’t have access to:

“Again, [for me it] goes back to the issue of access. Here’s something I would like to point out, Soledad. I know in this current economic climate we have to make different choices; however, I was raised by a woman whose philosophy it was to give her children the best education she could not afford. Do you understand what I’m saying?”

Contextualizing Romney’s Big Bird/PBS comment more, Burton said, “Not only is there value in the free, we have to make the investment in our children if we expect for them to pay off on that investment through their realizing their most full potential. So there are places where you can cut. There are places where you need to cut. And there are places that you just don’t cut because it is not right.”

While some may be parochial enough to think that Burton is making much ado about nothing, Burton displays an intellectual sophistication in tying Romney’s latest comments to his problematic philosophy about low- and- middle-class America:

“PBS is the nation’s largest classroom. It guarantees equal access to the wonderfulness that PBS has provided for almost 50 years in this country. And to callously, blatantly, say that it’s on the agenda to cut, is just — it is not okay. Because look, clearly this candidate — and I don’t believe that Mitt Romney is a bad guy — but I do believe that he believes what he said the other night. And I believe that his comment about the 47 percent is actually what he believes.”

You're welcome. I have to say that I'm surprised something like that would find a market.

While it doesn't hold any interest for me, I can see where it would be popular. For the most part, it seems people are interested in almost anything that provides mindless entertainment.
