Fascinating: Nov. 13 is Leonard Nimoy Day in Boston

He's originally from the West End, where father Max was a barber. As boys, Lennie and older brother Melvin sold newspapers on the Common. No idea why the mayor's office chose Nov. 13 for Leonard Nimoy Day in the City of Boston, though (it's not Nimoy's birthday).

      Nimoy will be appearing at the New England Fan Experience (source of the self-promoting tweet) on November 14.

      Leonard Nimoy was the best part of the Omni pre-show, with the possible exception of "HEY CHAHLIE! THESE PEOPLE WANNA SEE A LOBSTAH!"

      Too bad they got rid of that

      They should bring that video back. Not only do you have Nimoy, but you have the stomp-on-the-brake moment heading down onto Storrow.

      Remember when Nimoy hosted 'In Search of...'

      I used to love that show as a kid. Even if the subject wasn't that interesting, his narration always made it seem so mysterious. And I always felt smarter after watching that program.
