George Takei had to resort to needles and pins every time Shatner's ego made his stress-induced hypertension to kick in.

Do not get into a fight with your acupuncturist. Trust this guy on that one.

This is for the bonus points:
"Yeah, that's how it begins
She'll feel those needles and pins
a-hurtin her, a-hurtin her"

But I'll take a "stab" at it. Ahem.

"Needles and Pins" didn't quite make the cut as a superhero character.

(Hey, it's all I could come up with.)

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
