Takei’s ‘Trek’ to posterity

George Takei, our forever Hikaru Sulu on “Star Trek”:

“Our family came to this land of opportunity — the American Dream. Both parents born here. Me, 1937 in LA. On Dec. 7, 1941, I was 4. Soldiers marched up our driveway. Rifles. Bayonets. People spit at us, called us spies. Banged on our doors. We were arrested. Our house taken. Japanese Americans seen past 8 p.m. got thrown into jail. My father’s bank account frozen. Stripped naked, hate words painted on our car.

“We had nothing. We weren’t aliens. After the war we were given $25 and a one-way ticket to outside. Innocent Americans, we couldn’t find a home, a job. To survive my father washed dishes in a Chinese restaurant. We lived in horrific skid row with the stench of human excrement after four years behind barbed wire, machine guns pointed at us until he finally opened an abandoned cleaning shop.”

Eventually it was UCLA then New York and, he says, “dumb luck” where he became immortal as Sulu on “Star Trek.” He’s written six books. His latest is “My Lost Freedom.”

And the name George Takei has since been etched into posterity on the cement sidewalk in front of LA’s famous Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.

Government-issue absurdity

Michael Cohen graduated with a not terrifically fabulous legal education. Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Mich., once actually lost accreditation.

Note: Its stellar graduates include squad member Rashida Tlaib, the rep for Michigan’s 12th congressional district.

Also, this coming Trump v. Schlump debate? Quiet whispers burble that one or the other will craft some excuse to keep it from happening.

More. Mike Johnson, Speaker of the House, second in line for the presidency.

Criticizing NY’s State Court system? I’m being told he should’ve kept his Johnson in DC.

Also, Bragg’s trumped-up case?

How about an unknown payoff just staying unknown just because its payer just wanted his sex to just stay secret?

Not to deceive any US voters but just to protect his wife. So? So that’s illegal?

Cell reception

In 2019, the “progressive” City Council decided to close Rikers by 2026. Shrink population to about 3,000. However, numbers ballooned. Now it’s 7,000 — as many as Biden’s caregivers.

Closing this prison upped to a definite maybe by 2027. Now the can’s kicked down the road.

Efficient feds — who eff up their own departments (they’re still discussing the border problem) — will commandeer the problem.

A news blackout’s on Rikers. No more info on rising death rate and conditions.

Sharp looks

Sharpton’s sharpening up. Thinking lace not race.

Aisha McShaw, the Rev’s lady designer date, showed recently in a long gown with a high slit and a low neckline while his Revship swanned around in a white jacketed tux.

Nowadays you can’t tell a civil rights fighter from a Seventh Avenue fashionista.

To impress a woman: wine, dine, support her, compliment her, hear her, impress her, respect her and tell her you’ll go to the end of the Earth for her. To impress a man: just show up naked and bring food.

Only in New York, kids, only in New York.
