This video brought to you as part of the ongoing theme of songs that I either love or songs that happened to come on the radio yesterday. This one fits both.

From the Prospect Department, a tribute to my favorite doc in Starfleet, Leonard "Bones" McCoy.

Time for me to fly. Let us know how you're going to spend the extra hour with the game starting at 8 instead of 7.
