Bondith: not5am: Spanky McStupid: I would like to see the play he developed - American-Japanese internment is not brought up a lot.

(And I would wear my Takei apparel to the play.)

which is a damn shame as it's repeating itself with guantanamo. but i guess it's overshadowed by the holocaust and japan's treatment of pows and forced comfort women.


what's really surprising is this is a historical example of federal government interment camps of us citizens, but it's not even referenced by foxnews and teabaggers in their fear mongering.

1) Teabaggers suck at history.
2) It didn't happen to white people.


That bears repeating. 3 or 4 times, even.

Also, George Takei is awesome. How many other minor supporting actors from mid-60s TV shows are still absolutely culturally relevant today? How many from the 70s? 80s? And of those that are, how many have only done so by becoming parodies of themselves (Shatner, the Hoff, etc)?

Good for him. Also, the stuff he puts on my Facebook feed beats the usual crap political rants and baby pictures that most people put up by a loooooooooooooooooooooong shot.

There is no reason to follow him on facebook because at least 6 people you know will share his post.

He's still fairly popular and he's going to win at least two Tony Awards this year for Allegiance.  He's an awesome guy.


Here's a great interview with Takei on Penn Jillette's

You weren't kidding. I recommend this interview to anyone who likes to listen to audio books in their car. Takei doesn't ham it up on this one. Good stuff.

They have a lot in common.
