Royal Canadian Artillery Capt. (retd.) James "Scotty" Doohan made what should be his final public appearance in Los Angeles this last weekend. Doohan, who is in the advanced stages of Alzheimer's apparently, was wounded at D-Day and is remembered for his work later in the war as an artillery air observer, when he was christened the "craziest pilot" in the air (which for Canadians, is saying something). He's 84.

Oh, yes, I understand he also did some TV/movie work after that. Some kind of space show, I gather.

Thanks, I never knew that about 'Scottie'.

I still cannot get over how old he is...maybe I'm in denial how old I am...
