Too much violence in the news. Middle East hot spots as usual added to the rest of the hodgepodge of cruel humanity. Would that we would not be deluged with bad news. Would that everyone had learned not to make a mess and then kept to that advice. Ruling out any mess would always rule out hurting people, leveling people's homes, and general mayhem of all sorts.

Watched "StarTrek: Nemesis" last night. Excellent. Better than several of the other "StarTrek" films have been. Data lost his "life." And in so doing he became more human and more hero than most humans ever do. He "laid down his life for a friend" to quote scripture. The entire verse goes: "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (Jn 15:13). I was very surprised that the film didn't offer more homage to Data gone than they did. Of course they have a new android who is Data's "brother" so the actor keeps on in the same general role and more development is now possible again of the android character.
