Creative inspiration can come from the most unlikely of places. Some people might feel compelled to write a poem about a glitzy platform shoe they see discarded in the middle of I-74, while others find their muse in the sweet, sweet juice dripping from their chin after slicing a slice of watermelon have eaten. (Yes, that inspired this song.)
And if yes George Takei, you look to the sky. It’s really not that unusual considering the 85-year-old actor had a prominent role as Lt. played Sulu star trek TV series from the 1960s.
Last weekend Takei, who was born in Sacramento, California to parents of Japanese descent, told the world that Bowen Yang is not the only one forced to imitate the giant Chinese balloon that has been widely suspected to be monitoring the USA in a pretty charming old-school way.
For those of you whose New Year’s resolution was to take a break from the news over the weekend to preserve some of your sanity, the US military shot down the stray float Saturday as it passed near the Carolina coast drifted the Atlantic.
The first reports of the large white balloon flying over US airspace came last week when social media users posted videos of the plane being visible over Montana. While China admits they own the balloon, they claim it is simply a weather balloon, serving “primarily meteorological” purposes.
Which, while true, makes us wonder: why use the qualifier “primarily”? What else is the weather balloon up to?
