Die, All Die!

From a reader:

Jonah –

What a strange set of coincidences this morning! An NRO story on wolves, a

mention of Star Trek, and the passing of John Fiedler, best known NOT as

piglet, or even as Vinne from the Odd Couple, but as Mr. Hengist in the Star

Trek episode ‘Wolf in the Fold.’ He played Jack the Ripper, revealed as

evil incarnate, and occupying a new body. He gave us the unforgettable Star

Trek quote ‘Die, die, all die!’ when he was drugged and woozy.

K Lo can’t deny you a fitting tribute to this acting legend.

Me: Of course he also played Mr. Hercules on “Get Smart.”

Jonah Goldberg, a senior editor of National Review and the author of Suicide of the West, holds the Asness Chair in Applied Liberty at the American Enterprise Institute.
