BEZOS as ALIEN
Amazon’s billionaire CEO Jeff Bezos is an alien in the upcoming Star Trek movie. I loved the original series, but I haven’t followed the sequels. Don’t know how anybody can replace William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, and Patrick Stewart. Even if the current cast is great, it seems like a betrayal to enjoy their shows. But I may have to watch Star Trek Beyond to see if I can identify Bezos.
What an irony in the world of booksellers! After Amazon put booksellers out of business, it has opened a brick and mortar bookstore in Seattle, Washington; another is due to open this summer in San Diego, and a third in Portland, Oregon this fall.
