“Last night while at her home in L.A., Nichelle Nichols suffered from a mild stroke,” McGinnis wrote. “She is currently undergoing testing to determine how severe the stroke was. Please keep her in your thoughts.” Nichols, 82, appeared in the original “Star Trek” TV series, which ran from 1966-1969, as well as the “Star Trek” movies. She also played the role of Nana Dawson in the ABC show “Heroes,” and voiced characters in the TV series “Futurama,” “Gargoyles” and “Spider-Man.”
I wonder if there is something about the last Pope they don't want leaked. Could it be he stepped down to avoid a standing pope being shown to have committed some horrible crime against children?
It's possible. Also likely that Benedict XIV was shown to be too dovish about going after the predator-priests. Cardinal Law of Boston was given a prominent place in the Vatican hierarchy after he hushed allegations of sexual abuse in his archdiocese (and shuttled the priest to another parish to protect him). The Vatican hierarchy acts no differently than any other politicians abusing authority and hiding their mistakes.
