On the passing of Leonard Nimoy Feburary 27,  most news reporting quickly jumped to the fact that William Shatner was not attending the memorial service.   "I choose to honor a commitment I made months ago to appear at a charitable fundraiser," said Shatner, from Florida (news link).

That was more than enough to start the Shatner bashing.   Nimoy and Shatner had a storied history that included gossip on whether they'd ever really been friends or not.  Following the memorial service, Shatner's Twitter feed was alive with compliments directed towards Nimoy (story link), "one of my dearest friends."  Of course we want to believe they enjoyed each other's company.  Friendships are balm for the soul.

Principle in the type:  "Friendship . . . is not something you learn in school.  But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."  Muhammad Ali
