Takei to boldly go to Philly, Baltimore, Minneapolis, Phoenix, Denver, and Madison

by Jeremy Hooper

  In partnership with the Human Rights Campaign, George Takei -- Star Trek's Sulu, recently de-closeted gay man, and the "Will & Grace" guest star from last night who wasn't Britney Spears or Wanda Sykes -- is embarking on a tour of six cities, where he will speak on LGBT issues.

Responding to the story, we of course said "Beam me up, Scotty," as it's Friday afternoon; everyone knows your humble scribe moves his office to the local watering hole and starts knocking back Jim and Diets (as poured by his fav. bartender, Scott Schwartz) at 12 prompt. Though since we can't think of any catch phrases or cultural zeitgeist contributions made by "Star Trek," we will simply close this entry by saying best of luck to HRC and Takei, reminding them that when one speaks live, long and prosperous talks are the most efficient.

The tour kicks off April 10 in Philly -- grab your fay sirs and attend.
