I’m writing too much about death, lately, but it’s that or politics and more people I liked are dead so … Don’t blame me for killing them.
In Star Trek II the crew came back
To face the Wrath of Khan
Which proved a poor career move
For Ricardo Montalban
I actually own a Kahn shirt from Glarkware. A lot of people remember him for Fantasy Island, or as the voice of Senor Senior Senior (Kim Possible). Folks who are a bit older will remember him from a spot on “Man From U.N.C.L.E.” where he was surrounded by hip teenagers (it was a David McCallum-less episode, so at least we had Ricardo).
But he is forever Khan Noonien Singh. The epitome of humanity, the superman, genetically designed to be free of all defects and smarter than anyone else. A firm but gentle ruler.
And damn you all, that is too his own chest!
