The Needs of the Fan Outweigh the Needs of the Fin
Five dollar bills are being defaced in Canada. Or, rather, re-faced. All I have to say is, Sir Wilford Laurier, seventh Prime Minister of Canada, ought to feel honored. That's his portrait that Star Trek fans are Spockifying with his signature Vulcan ears, eyebrows, and haircut. Others may find this sort of homage disrespectful, but I find it highly entertaining. Don't tell anyone! It's perfectly legal! I know, that makes a teensy bit less fun and rebellious. Live long, and prosper.
