The Commercial Appeal reports that Democrat Commissioner Steve Mulroy is a Star Trek fan. So much so that he came to Monday’s meeting wearing a red Star Trek uniform shirt and gave the Vulcan hand sign. He was doing it to honor the upcoming Memphis Comic and Fantasy Convention. Shades of James Traficant, the flamboyant Ohio Democrat congressman, also a Star Trek aficionado, who finished his speeches on the floor by saying, “Beam me up, Scottie. There’s no intelligent life here.” He was convicted of taking bribes and served time in prison; something we hope does not occur to Mulroy.
