O Captain, My Captain
This is pathetic: I finally dreamed of Bill (for the first time!), and what did I dream? I dreamed I went up to him-- as he is today, more or less--and shook his hand.
He made some perfectly pleasant remark, which I don't recall, like "thank you very much" or something.
And that was it.
Is this the best my subconscious could come up with?
Forgive me, capitano dell'astronave!
This is the best thing I've read on Shatner as Shatner, from The Guardian, "William Shatner, you are a very special guy":
"William Shatner may be a living joke, but his dignity, not to say his genius, is that he's the one telling it."
