Leonard Simon Nimoy has died at the age of 83. He had suffered from lung problems for some time. He served in the U.S. Army, had several excellent movie roles (especially in the Invasion of the Body Snatchers remake), and apparently was in some sort of science fiction franchise or other. I've always liked the breadth of his artistic interests: acting, directing, photography, poetry, music.
His last tweet on Twitter, from Sunday: "A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP."
