James Doohan Beams Out


Link to article that has obviously been ready and in waiting for quite some time.

Sample paragraph:

The Canadians crossed a minefield laid for tanks; the soldiers weren't heavy enough to detonate the bombs. At 11:30 that night, he was machine-gunned, taking six hits: one that took off his middle right finger (he managed to hide the missing finger on screen), four in his leg and one in the chest. The chest bullet was stopped by his silver cigarette case.

I had no idea that jimmy was at Juno Beach on the morning of June 6th, 1944.

Read the whole thing. It's pretty good... for CNN...
