I love Wesley Crusher. I have loved Wesley Crusher my whole life. Sure, now that i’m older looking back, he’s a huge dork. But Wesley Crusher single-handedly shaped the person i am today. I’ll never forget the day back in elementary school when i was flipping channels, & suddenly saw the most beautiful face i’d ever seen, in his manly rainbow & gray jumpsuit. This was my introduction to Star Trek: The Next Generation. I watched over the years as Wesley saved the Enterprise from the game, kissed the Dauphin, went to the Academy & stood trial…. & ultimately when he left with the Traveler (oh i cried! “NO WESLEY! I LOVE YOU! YOU CAN’T LEAVE!” But alas, he did.)
Anyways. I am proud to say that I LOVE WESLEY CRUSHER.
From the sandy hills of Tatooine, let freedom ring; Let freedom ring from the mountains of Mordor; Let freedom ring from the plains of Rigel VII; Let freedom ring from the hallowed halls of Hogwarts. From every tree in Pandora, let freedom ring.
And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every alien village and every shire, from every castle to every city in the clouds, we will be able to speed up that day when all of The Force’s children — black men and white men and half-black-half-white men from Cheron from that one Trek episode, Muggles and wizards, those who want to believe and the skeptics, Jedi and Sith, Time Lords and Daleks, will be able to join hands and sing the words of the old Ewok spiritual, “Yub nub, yub nub.”
So I was watching the View today and was saddened by the fact that my idol (whoopi) Didn’t know that Oprah’s new Network OWN was an acronym for THE OPRAH WINFERY NETWORK. She just thought it was because Oprah wanted to have her OWN network….. Oh Whoopi. I still love you dont worry.
