‘Beam me out of here’

INDIAN TRAIL, N.C. — A North Carolina town councillor who is planning to run for Congress has quit by submitting a resignation letter written in Klingon, the language of an extraterrestrial warrior species on Star Trek, according to Reuters. David Waddell chose the language because the fierce-looking science fiction characters value integrity, honour and duty. The city’s mayor, Michael Alvarez, a self-described Trekkie, said he didn’t understand the letter and only realized Waddell was leaving when he started getting phone calls about it. He was disappointed by the resignation (and the use of Klingon to do it) but had this sage Vulcan advice for the councillor: “Live long and prosper.”
