A lot of Trekkies don’t like JJ Abrams and his rendition of Star Trek. But I hope to show that detractors don’t hold the previous films to the same standard, and I’m going to favorably compare The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek Into Darkness to do it.
Like the Yankees, the Monetti's had a very deep bench. I had so many aunts, uncles and cousins to rejoice in at family get together's, that it was almost dizzying. And then out of nowhere, we'd go visit Uncle Willie. I was reminded he was a star in his own right, and a telling moment from his 80th birthday party revealed that he could roll as well as the rest of the roster.

A look back an amazing 2008 story...
On June 28th, 2005, Navy Seal Michael Murphy and his outfit were tracking a high level Taliban operative in Afghanistan when their cover was blown. They were soon surrounded, and a massive firefight ensued. The seals had only chance of survival. The outfit needed someone to transmit a message back to base from an open location, and that person would be completely exposed to enemy fire. As team leader, Lt Murphy assumed responsibility, and unlike in the movies, heroism isn't always rewarded with waving flags and a valiant homecoming.

Facebook is what it would be like if we all got our 15 minutes of fame every single day and made the worst of it. Swept away by all the attention, I used to be one of those people. You know, those who are continually posting their political certainties in hopes of changing the world. I mean even when you got a point that should resonate on the opposing side, only one thing happens. Your social media detractors just dig in deeper and do all they can to find a counter that satisfies their world view.
When Steve and Liz Alderman lost their son Peter at the WTC on 9/11, they almost immediately searching for a fitting manner to remember him. The couple was clued in when they randomly learned that there are hundreds of millions around the world who suffer severe mental illness due to torture, war, and terrorism. Thus, the Bedford couple began the Peter C. Alderman Foundation to address this global epidemic. Ten years later, their story has received worldwide recognition and is the subject of a new documentary. The film also has one of Hollywood’s most famous actors as its executive producer.

As a devout Trekkie, I am well aware of the arrogance many of us levy over the competing franchise. But to discard Star Wars as nothing more than a frivolous romp does not do George Lucas' vision justice.
